Experiencing Running Past 50

Posted on by Harry Stevenson

Running Past 50 is fast approaching it’s 4th birthday. It has gone from strength to strength, not just with numbers attending either.  During the recent lockdowns the regulars stayed in touch with each other and even began to meet for a regular runs together.  Friendships have been forged and a real sense of community prevails. The regular Friday morning session takes place at the Olympic Legacy Park, 10:30am and is led by Accelerate Community Coaches Sarah and Simon.

Hi everyone! Hannah (sports nutritionist here). It’s been a while since I’ve run properly. I think I ran once in May and didn’t really enjoy it but today I’m back! Basically, I’m starting from the scratch. The benefit I have is that I know what to do in terms of food and nutrition but everything else needs (a lot of) work.
