Running Safety Reminder

When we train, the emphasis is always on safety. As a group, we ask our members to not wear headphones.

Report by Angela Parker and Elaine Ellender It is 4.30am on Sunday 6th November 2016 and we could not be more blessed with a better day for running the New York Marathon.  The morning was cool and predicted temperatures were for the mid-teens or high fifties depending on whether you prefer Celsius or Fahrenheit.  And they were not wrong.  The sun shone and the air was warm as we ran.
