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.

Wing runs the Vitality Big Half

On a damp and blustery Sunday, Wing took on the Vitality Big Half in London. Before the race saw the worse of the weather with 25MPH winds and driving rain. This didn’t dampen Wings spirit and fight though, as although needing to battle against the wind, the sun came out and she recorded a fantastic time of 1:56:38.

Boxted Runners on Tour

This week, the Boxted Runners were invited to take part in a Charity Run with the Framlingham Flyers in Aid of the British Heart Foundation at Bastings Hall
