As the year progresses and the weather improves, events appear in their droves.
Our numbers now swelling, there isn’t a single event that goes by without seeing at least one Phoenix taking the plunge!
Midweek events are commonplace…
Before the weekend even arrived a few headed way down West to tackle a multi-terrain course. Others headed way up north to fly around a 1 mile course around the side of a lake.
Events being clocked up…
Before the weekend arrived the Phoenix descended on our favourite curry house to occupy the whole restaurant for an evening of great food and great company!
Saturday. parkrunday. While some got their regular fix with personal bests aplenty, others had made their way to mid Wales to tackle a Royal 10k course on the trails some of whom still snook in their constitutional on the way.
A few more had made their way further north, parkrun included, to climb a significant peak in Snowdonia and all completed the task with honours.
The sun set on a glorious day and rose again, despite the forecast…
A half in Chester was tackled with guts while another in Manchester led to a PB.
There was safety in numbers as a 10k with hills was completed in style in the home of cheese.
Another brave couple headed back to Snowdonia to tackle a seriously hilly half and came back victorious with their spoils.
A local event drew a few away to tackle a variety of distances from extreme half to ultra marathon.
Four of our midst stepped up to the plate and spent the day learning. Committing time to the club to learn how to lead training sessions and help to develop us all into becoming better runners.
And all the while we saw our 4th highest attendance of the year at training and not least our heroes continuing their running journeys.
What a fantastic week to be a Phoenix!
Great numbers at events.
Great numbers at training.
Great experiences had by all.
Continuing to do what we love and share the experiences of doing so.
Keep it up guys, you’re doing great!
