Hi everyone... at last I have entered the wonderful world of the ER blog. Can't wait to entertain you all with tales of derring do, races hard fought etc etc.

Hmm, better go out and do something then I suppose!

Cheers pen

What ? How did I get here? WHere am i?

and have I nothing better to do?

Oh, I'm on the blog today - where was I yesterday ? - I could see a TOWER, and a SHIP and a lot of runners, I could also see a couple of blokes who couldn't see a SHIP !

Anyway, the sea was a beautiful brown colour and was on our left (or right, depending which way you were running) and the big TOWER sometimes came into view.

There were 13 (unlucky!) Eden runners at BLACKPOOL for the NW half marathon, an excellent turnout including some pb's and another first? - the first half marathon run 'under the influence' by an Eden runner....

I was at the high cup nick on Saturday too (watching, chauffeuring, coat carrying, tea buying, encouraging- they have it too easy these lady fell runners in our club, the only thing I din't do was to run the bloody event for them!) and another good day out for ER's with a top ten (7th) place for Derek and good runs from everyone. Sadly we temporarily lost a guest runner, Christine, a friend of Pennys, who took a tumble and tried to hide in a ditch - this ploy would
have worked had she took to the ditch shortly after leaving the village, rather than on top of the hill!

Anyway a good week end for all, and I hope all th efell runners had a nice lie in on SUnday morning too!

High Cup Nick Fell Race

High Cup Nick in better weather

There was a stonking ER turnout for the High Cup Nick race yesterday: something like ten of us. The weather in Penrith had been deceptively spring-like, but by the time Gill and Andy's ER Racemobile pulled into Dufton, the clouds were dropping into the Nick and the wind had become a screaming howler.

In character-building conditions, Derek Hurton pulled off a highly respectable 7th place, while first ER lady home was Gill Douglas, in effortless style. More results will follow soon.

A grand day out, so well done to everyone who braved the conditions, and what a fantastic start to the ER Fell Race Championships.

Woah. Never having done this before, it is with fear and trepidation that I plunge headlong into the darkness.

Hindsight would be useful as a torch if you could only point it forwards sometimes.....

Let's see what happens if I click this .....

Eden Runners enter the Blogosphere

Well here it is, a blog for Eden Runners to share their running stories and photos, triumphs and tragedies.

A place to chill out, pop and ibuprofen and look back on those memorable runs and races. And if you're thinking of joining the club, we hope you get a flavour of who we are and what we do.
