To all stubbie ladies, Anna Wilby-Lopez is organising a LADIES park run for Saturday 3rd may at Netley Abbey. Anna thought this would be a great opportunity to get as many ladies together to take part in a timed 5k run, and then have coffee and cake afterwards. The course is in and around Victoria country park so you can bring the family, or the children can even take part. It's a free event, all you need to do is visit the parkrun website, register, print off a barcode to bring with you and get yourself a green Stubbington vest to wear. For more information on parkrun or to register please visit www.parkrun.org.uk
I would love to have lots of ladies join me whatever pace you are. If you are interested and would like more info please personal message Anna Wilby-Lopez.

Stubbington Green Runners holds a friendly session at 9am on a Monday morning, meeting at Crofton Community Centre, for those people who find it difficult to make evening sessions. If you are quite new to running and would like some support come along; or if you are more experienced/faster, we cater for you too. We tend to jog down towards the beach and then do some efforts, such as one minute running, one minute recovery, or reps along the shingle. As long as you can jog/run for 2-3 miles then come along; the weather is getting better – it's time to get fit! If you let us know you are coming we will always wait. I always run at the back so no-one is ever left behind or will get lost! Please note: This session tends to only run in term time, so look for me on facebook or twitter @fieryfootedme or text me on 07956050159 to see if it is on. Thank you!
