A message from Alison

My running journey started in January 2018 from someone who didn’t like walking let alone running to I wouldn’t be without it now.

Only running once a week, started parkrun September 2018 now I’m nearing my 100th parkrun in November. 2.5 years in I started running further and Half Marathons became my favourite doing around 30 to date.

I love a challenge so I’ve done London Virtual Marathon twice on my own and here’s to 2023. Goals for 2023 run sub 25 mins for 5km, sub 2 hours for HM and nearer 5 hours for a marathon. Keep running
