November National Lockdown

Following the UK Government’s new national COVID-19 restrictions and the publication of bespoke instructions from the Department for Digital, Culture, Media & Sport (DCMS), EA have revised the current guidance for athletics and running. Despite us lobbying DCMS for certain exemptions, this new guidance will apply from Thursday 5 November 2020 until Wednesday 2 December 2020. From this Thursday [5 November 2020], the UK Government is requiring everyone in England to stay at home, except for specific purposes, and not gather with other people who do not live in the same household, again except for specific purposes.

What a Day! #CHM2019

With the sun shining down and perfect running conditions, just after 8:00am, the 25 Boxted Runners made their way to the Colchester United Stadium for the 2019 Colchester Half Marathon.

Becky and Armand seize the weekend

The big race of the weekend this week was the 7.5 and 15 mile Colchester Harriers annual road race. Whilst many of the Boxted Runners were taking it easy this weekend in preparation for the upcoming Colchester Half Marathon next week, Becky was taking on the challenging 7.5 mile route.

Running with a bunch of people from all different levels is great. The faster, more capable runners will loop around to keep everyone together. There are plenty of newer runners so it doesn’t matter what level you are, there’s always someone to run with. A great way to meet new people and to set new goals.

I cannot recommend this running club enough. I am no runner but have today completed the absolute beginners to 5k course and feel part of the club. Everyone is so supportive and I love running with the group. Thank you to all the coaches and also my fellow beginners. We did it!!!

Thank you so much for your support in rekindling my love for running again. My husband had never run before the beginners course and has just run his first 5k. We are both delighted with our progress and have loved being part of such an amazingly supportive group. Thank you again.

A great club, every single person is friendly and welcoming and extremely motivating! In 8 weeks I’ve gone from being a definite “non-runner” to being able to run 5k in under 40 minutes. Thank you Vanessa and all at Boxted runners!

I started running with boxted runners with the absolute beginners course they did back in April this year. I was very very over weight and was so worried about turning up on the first day it started but I must say everyone is so friendly supportive and non judgement and I’m still running with them now much fitter, happier and thinner 😁 I can honestly say I love boxted runners and would so recommend them it’s changed my life in so many ways There’s something for everyone boxted runners are the best 👌

Boxted Runners has changed my life, honestly! I joined this club on its second ever run in June 2017 and have been addicted ever since. Not just to running but to running with such a wonderful group of supportive, friendly people through the scenic Boxted countryside. Highly recommend for runners of all abilities
