    Craft Half – a half marathon with a twist.

    Hi everybody

    We were contacted through the website by organisers of a local (Lee Valley Park) half marathon. It is a rather unusual race. To spoil it a bit – it does involve alcohol. Please read for details below:


    I hope you don’t mind me getting in touch but I wanted to share an upcoming run with you and the Edmonton Runners. We’re organizing a half marathon and 10K with a twist along the gorgeous paths of the Lee Valley Country Park and would be super grateful if you could share the event with your club and contacts (and we would really love a few of you to join!).

    The event:
    The Street Child Craft Half is a half marathon and 10K run organized by award-winning race organizers and international charity Street Child – we work in some of the toughest places in the world to help children go to school. You may have heard of us as the organizers behind the Sierra Leone Marathon (Best International Event at the Running Awards 2017!). Now we’re bringing our unique new event, The Craft Half, to Lee Valley to raise vital funds to support our work. The Craft Half is a half marathon with a tasty difference – runners will be rewarded with half pints of craft beer at fueling stations every two miles. The fun doesn’t stop at the finishing line – Street Child will host the ‘Halfter Party’ with all runners and supporters invited into the event village complete with live music, sizzling Street Food and, of course, more craft beer!

    Fancy joining?

    Entry is £25 (includes finishers t-shirt, 6 half pints (for half marathon, 3 for 10K) and race medal for fundraisers) – teams of 6 or more get 20% discount.

    Date: 2nd September 2018

    Location: Lee Valley Country Park, near White Water Centre – parking available (but please don’t drink and drive!)

    Thank you so much! I hope you have a great week,


    Any takers?

    If you have fancied giving a triathlon a go, this event is a good one to start with. A few have asked me which is a good one to try.
    The event covers all distances right down to Adult beginners.
    Its all closed traffic free path around the Olympic Rowing course.
    There is also a duathlon (run/bike/run) if you don’t fancy getting wet!
    You would need to get you and your bike there – bikes must be road worthy and a helmet must be worn! But other than that you can use any bike.
    A wetsuit would be a good idea, the water should be warm – ish ! But you can swim without, unless the water temp is below 14 degrees.

    I’m thinking of entering Triffic Trail on Sunday 24th June but I don’t want to enter on my own! Who else is doing it?


  7. Gemma Wooden says:


    I’ll be going to the MWL race straight from home tomorrow but I can give 3 people a lift back if anyone is still looking for transport :).

    See you tomorrow!


  8. Nina Kennedy says:

    Hi all
    Is anyone driving to Hitchin from the Clubhouse tomorrow evening? Ai Seng and me are needing a lift. (Can’t make it to training tonight).
    Many thanks,

    Hi everyone, most of you know I only race if there’s a medal at the end, which was why I refused to run Ware 10, guess what? They’ve got a medal this year to commemorate their 10th year!…guess who’s just entered it?!!! 👣🏅😆
