Camping at Cannock Chase


Im 85 years old now and the memory is fading a bit and I thought I should recount the yarn of how the 2010 Finchcoasters went camping one July.

It all started with Louise Mander deciding to join a friend for a 10K run up at Cannock Chase. She, being a chatty sort of lady, well chatted, and several others thought they would give it ago. So all booked up and off they all went in separate cars. 7 of them.

Mind you, one family so enjoy the buzz of actually setting off on holiday, that that Friday they did it THREE times! I cant say who it was but Isabel said Mum forgot her wooly PJ’s and Oli said actually Dad forgot his shorts and shoes!

Beachy Head Marathon Report

Three Rusties go to the Seaside (or Beachy Head Marathon Report 2009)


Saturday 24th October


This is a story, based upon actual true events. Any resemblance to living individuals is purely incidental, and probably true (in most part).


For as long as they can remember (about 5 or 6 years) the old rusties had gone to the seaside with their friends. For most this would have meant knotted hankies, paddling, cups of tea and of course fish, chips and bingo. For them though it was slightly different as they belongs to those strange (mad) group og people who actually LIKE to go outside in the wet and cold and RUN. (well they think its running, some people uncharitably call it jogging or walking even, which sometimes is nearer the truth).

Atlantic Coast Challenge 2009.

Thursday 24th September

I drove down to the event campsite at Hayle near St Ives and joined the 210 others there. I was allocated to a caravan sharing with a chap called Dan. Dan it turned out is a Royal Marine. His training has consisted of doing 20 miles running a day in 2 hours 20mins!!! Unsurprisingly he was one of the top 3 runners till he pulled something on the last day.

Blackwater Valley Run Sat 18th July 2009


Every year we organise a club day out that involves a scenic route somewhere. The route is divided up into small segments for between a mile and a couple of miles. The bus meets us at each leg for tea and cakes (and carries all our stuff). Its very social and fun.

In previous years we have run along the Basingstoke Canal. However this year for a change, it was decided to try something different and nearer to home. To make it easy it had to begin with a “B”, so someone (John I guess) suggested the Blackwater Valley Path. This runs from its source in Aldershot by the A325 through Frimley, Camberley, Yateley and Eversley to Swallowfield, where it joins the river Loddon.
