Review of 2022

Mote Runners continued to thrive in 2022 with membership steadily increasing and many of our runners making great progress in reaching their individual goals. Below are a few of the highlights. Club Championship – January – November 2022 We completed our first Club Championship, which consisted of 10 races with a scoring mechanism aimed at […]

Parkrun tourism by Rosemary Egbe 

So Alan asked me to say a few words about parkrun. I’m love parkrun, could talk about it for hours so this is my ‘summary’… I enjoy visiting new events – same parkrun vibe but different. To date I’ve completed 520 parkruns and have ran at 397 different events in 12 countries (furthest is USA). […]

March 2021

The 5k’s continued to be a big success with Eve and Tracey regularly coming in with fast times. And not forgetting Tony with his 24.08 PB. The early part of the month was dull and cold but with some big mileage being put in. We continued to be optimistic as to the future with signs […]

February 2021

February got off to a good start with Tom recording his first marathon distance. The February Challenge proved interesting. The idea was that you got a point for each activity you did in February. These activities included a 3k walk, a 1 mile sprint, a 5/10k run, speed session, yoga, hill training, cycle ride and […]

January 2021

With the third national lockdown coming into place on 4th January 2021, there was the prospect of no club runs for the imminent future and the picture all round was bleak. It’s been a difficult time for so many and running has been one of the few activities that can still take place, although with […]

December 2020

With Kent now in Tier 4, there is little chance of any club runs in the foreseeable future so we are keen to keep the club ticking over by organising other events. At the beginning of December, we had an excellent Zoom Sports Nutrition talk by Antonia Braun from Lots are areas were covered […]

November 2020

We were able to meet only once in November due to “lockdown”. Despite this, there was plenty of activity with the various WhatsApp groups providing a great source of support and information. It has been a real shame that our club nights have had to come to a temporary halt as the club has gone […]

October 2020

The Virtual VLM took place on 4th October 2020 on a wet and windy day. Despite the conditions, there was plenty of support for our runners who ran along the Medway. A huge congratulation to all who participated. We continued to meet at the club on both a Tuesday and Thursday night with some good […]

September 2020

We have seen a gradual increase in membership over the last few months with over 57% of our members being women. From receiving feedback, one of the key attractions of joining the club is that we really look after new members and guide them to run with a group of similar ability. When we set […]

August 2020

Whilst Tuesday nights are our main club night, Thursday nights are proving to be very popular. These are slightly less formal than Tuesdays but we continue to run in groups and of course, “no-one gets left behind”. Having a variety of routes and runs with varying abilities helps everyone to make progress in their running. […]
