Hi Off Road runners,

Who can tell me who wrote this:?

“And did you really walk,” said I,
On such a wretched night?
I always fancied Ghosts could fly –
If not exactly in the sky,
Yet at a fairish height.”


I had been looking forward to the Two Tunnels race this weekend, however here are the results for the October event:

61st Andrew Sharratt 49:08 - 1st M60-69
94th Richard Newman 55:40

AVR Club Championship and WAVA League

There haven't been many opportunities for competition this year with so many events being cancelled but AVR's Club Championship and WAVA League is still going ahead. Send all results to me at by 31st December and I will collate everything for the website and awards.

Please note that the AVR road and off road leagues are cancelled this year as is the annual How Farr For AVR competition.

Club Championship

Send in your best times from 2020 for 5k, 10k and Half Marathon to be included and for this year only, physical and virtual events, such as the Westbury 5k, and parkruns from January-March will be included. You must be able to provide links to your results.

Previous results can be seen here


LeagueThis is an age grading competition to give you a performance percentage in distances from 5k to marathon. Use a WAVA calculator such as this and send in your result.

Previous results can be found here


… and I thought that there was nothing to say this month!

Latest news from the TRA: There will be no TRA Championship events in 2021.

Keep training, Anthony
