Bridport Runners have started their own little Club race tonight ─ a series of timed 5k runs along the promenade in West Bay. The run will take place on the last Wednesday of each month until October. The inauguration run tonight has already seen 11 Bridport Runners and two guest runners (thanks for joining, Emma and Paul) sprinting off to do five 1k loops along the promenade and the beginning of the pier. First one to finish was Sam in 20 minutes 18 seconds, followed by Hagen (23:58) and Paul (26:21). “We thought it would be fun and add a bit of inter-club competition to our training”, commented Clive on the idea of the new race. Thanks for everyone taking part ─ and a big THANK YOU for Clive, Brian and John who organised and marshalled the run tonight. The next 5k races will start from the ice-cream kiosk on the promenade on 28 June, 26 July, 30 August, 27 September and 25 October (or basically the last Wednesday of each month until October), meeting at 6:00 pm.
