Congratulations to Becs and Phil for completing their first full Ironman Triathlon this weekend. Two incredible club athletes and great performances for both, finishing high in the rankings, after 100+ miles on the bike and a full marathon. Not bad for your first full tri! Phil's times: Bec's times: As a club we have a small but growing group of Tri athletes, taking on rides with the Poplar Cycling Club, and open water swim sessions. New members are always welcome - please get in touch to learn more, or talk to Phil and Becs.
5 runners from Poplar Running Clubs 2017 Couch to 5k course graduated at Rushcliffe Parkrun on 24th June 2017 - Congratulations to them all! What a success our 2017 C25k course has been - 73 runners have graduated and many are now running regularly on club nights as a result. A huge thank you is due to every club member that helped with running the course.
On Saturday 3rd June a further 56 runners graduated from the C25k course at Rushcliffe Parkrun. We were blessed with a warm, sunny summer morning with a light breeze - just perfect for running. It was an emotional and exciting morning - there were lots of happy faces (and a few tears of relief and joy!). Afterwards certificates of completion were presented by Lee Dawson (Club Chairman), prior to celebrating with the graduation cake. Thanks to all Run Leaders and volunteers and the participants for making it such a happy occasion!
