BRR Diary

7.00pm, Tuesday 26 July – Speed Development. Jim Peter’s Stadium. It’s the last Tuesday of the month, so Captain Rob’s evil twin will be overseeing your timed mile, plus the usual 300s (unless he’s thought of something even more evil to do).

7.00pm, Thursday 28 July – Summer Handicap #06. Barking Park. It’s the penultimate race in the summer competition. Chris and Alison won’t be around, so if you don’t want to run it would be great if you could help Greg with the organisation.

10.00am, Saturday 6 August – Orion Forest Five ELVIS and GP race. An ever-popular trail race through Epping Forest, and this time you will earn point towards both the Club ELVIS and GP competitions. More details and entry at

9.30, Sunday Hainault forest for gentle training runs with tea and Social afterwards.


7.00pm, Thursday 11 August – Summer Handicap #07. Barking Park. The last race in the competition (sob!). Even if it’s too late to be in the overall top three, it’s not too late to win the tenner.


Cracker Corner

I was playing tennis and this 30 foot Bicycle went pass.  I thought that was a long Raleigh.

Have you tried that New 007 Glue?  Bonds in seconds.

This bag of Rubbish came up to me.  He said “I’m at your disposal”.

This bloke said to me, he said I’m never going to use a Pen again.

I said can you put that in writing.
