Racing at the weekend : a 5 mile ‘Ilford Open’ is advertised at the Redbridge Cycle Circuit, where some of us have raced before, on Sunday 31st. It is advertised in theĀ Essex Walker as starting at 2:30 but I know no more about it than this.

Training from Tilsley Park on Monday 18 July : 10k-ish Radley Lakes loop, shorter options avaiable too

Training from Tilsley Park on Wednesday 20 July : laps of the 2.33k circuit.

Racing at the weekend : Saturday 23rd : Half marathon in the Enfield League series, at Hillingdon, at 1 pm. Shorter distances will be timed too.

Training at the weekend : with a few people now looking to do 20k races, longer distance training from 12k upwards will become a regular weekend feature. Given commitments, this will be either on Saturday or Sunday mornings, whichever suits most people. Any preferences for this weekend, if you’re not going to Hillingdon ?
