Last night 22 members of BRJ Beginners Course achieved their goal on a cool but sunny Monday evening.
12 weeks ago they began by doing seven reps of a one minute run followed by a three minute recovery walk. Last night they ran continuously fo 40 minutes non-stop, a fantastic achievement and testament to their determination which has been apparent every week.

This popular New Years Eve race was run by 27 BRJers. Conditions were surprisingly good and 4 PB's were secured by Daniel Mitton, Chirag Godhania, Alice Synge and Sarah Watts. Team BRJ was led home by the increasingly speedy Daniel Mitton, and the ladies were led by Anna Douglas.
