Martin Bush’s 900 Marathons


On the 10th June at the Thames Path Potter marathon Martin Bush completed a weekend double to hit the 900 marathon barrier making him second most prolific marathon runner in the UK.  This is one fantastic achievement for a member of our club.
On Saturday during our Boat trip I made the surprise announcement and presented him with the award along with Pete ‘The Train’ Morris. See video at the bottom of the page.

I’ve travelled and ran many marathons with Martin and could not meet a more likeable humble bloke. Well done matey from us all!! See you on your 1000th shortly.

Endure 24 2017


How cool was this? I’m sure like me you had a brilliant time camping & running for 24 hours. Just want to say a massive thank you on behalf of us all to our Endure captain for 2017 Ian Giggs for organising this. Well done to all who took part and supported and to all our prize winners.

I’m sure Ian will soon be sorting out teams again for next year so if you’re now skint make sure you avoid him in Club House (I’m joking)
