After the success of last year’s programme, Penistone Footpath Runners are once again offering a free 10 week series of sessions, starting on Thursday May 19th 2016, to help you get into running or just improve your fitness. Details are available here.
The senior club championship standings have been updated to include Spencers Dash and are on the Championship Results page. Junior club championship standings are up to date including Coiners fell race on the Junior Club Championship page.
Apparently, some people have been unable to find the membership form on the website, and have hence been unable to renew their membership! It’s here!

The club has a new starters/improvers group, which will be a regular part of the Club’s training nights, meeting at 6.30pm on Tuesdays and Thursdays. The aim is to help new or existing members improve so that they feel confident to move up to other groups within the training regime. A rota has been drawn up of members who have volunteered to take turns leading the group: any member who wants to help can contact Annie Lightowler to offer their services.
As runners we all spend time out training, buying the latest kit and entering races. But the one thing most of us forget, can’t be bothered to do or just don’t know how to do, is a post run stretch. In an attempt to keep injury free we really should not ignore this part of our training routine.
This link shows a number of key stretches that all runners should do post run. They shouldn’t take more than 5-10 mins and your muscles will appreciate them.
Results from the race run on 8th September are now available here. Congratulations to this year’s winners: Chloe Hinchliffe and Thomas Wood.
Results after the third and final race in Bob’s Duathlon series are on the race page. 34 people competed in one or more races, either as an individual or as part of a team. 12 individuals, one team and one dog qualified by competing in two or more races. Congratulations to this year’s winners: Shaun Dimelow, John Broom, Gary Dean, Sarah Halstead, Annie Lightowler, John Halstead, Tom Fryers and Scott & Kelvin Bowskill.
We were told to ‘prepare to be baffled’, and we were baffled, but we all got there in the end. Andrew Heppenstall, Tim Webster, Jane Cockerton and Keith Gordon got there first though, and they are this year’s winners!
