New RSE Club Report – Blazing Blaisdon and Searing Sports Day!

This out and back course can only be described as beautiful. Held in Long Hope near the Forest of Dean, the route begins at the Red Hart and follows the undulating road, taking in the picturesque countryside. This was the next race in RSE’s championship, meaning several club members took on the run in the hot summer’s heat!

  • David Witnall – 40:35
  • Mark Garrett – 42:29
  • Nia Glover – 43:43

Well done to the RSE ladies, who secured 3rd place overall! Congrats to Nia, Rosie, Sharon and Elaine!

Great atmosphere finishing at the pub and a scenic undulating route!

Sports Day

This week saw RSE’s first ever sports day! Rather than the usual effort session, the club tackled space hoppers and foam javelins, and tested their balance skills with the egg and spoon. A massive thank you to Nadine Brown, Ollie Hazel and Carol Sworn for organising the events, keeping score and managing the competitive-ness of the RSE members. We loved it!

Well done to the Red team who won the evening!

And thank you to those that took all these embarrassing photos…

If you would like a run or race included in the club report, don’t forget to message Ellie Taylor by 5pm Sunday each week
