- September 2019
The early September 2019 gave us good weather and again, we made full use of Mote Park for our club runs. The Mote Cricket Club is a great venue, especially when you can sit outside after a Tuesday club run watch the cricket with a drink.
On the 1st September 2019, Lianne won her age group at the Badlesmere 10k with another top quality run. This was the first time this event has been held; it was a great run to do along with some fellow Mote Runners.
The following week, Rohan Seal successfully completed the Man vs Mountain challenge and was sort of smiling in the photos! A very challenging event, well done Rohan.
Also, the final handicap 5k run took place and was won by Theresa. This has become quite competitive and thanks again to Mick for organising.
We also had some training sessions run by Dave B and Suzanne. The advantage of being on the doorstep of Mote Park is that we can hold these sessions in a safe and friendly environment. The hills don’t help though, unless it’s hill training week!
Towards the end of the month, we entered a team in The Mote Cricket Clubs annual quiz evening. A very well organised quiz and despite our best efforts, we won the wooden spoon. Not entirely sure what happened but at least we came away with a prize (a pink pencil case each).
September also saw the successful start of our Mote Beginners sessions. The sessions run as part of the club membership on Thursday evenings at 7pm at The Mote Cricket Club. They are aimed at those who really want to start running but perhaps don’t have the confidence or experience to complete our 5k route with us and are looking for a place to start, or for those returning to running after a break or injury.

It’s been a really good month with great use of Mote Park for our runs which have ranged from 1 mile to 10k and at varying levels. There has always been a volunteer back-marker on each club run as we know it can be quite intimidating if you’re not one of the fast runners and we don’t want anyone left behind.
We have also been quite lucky, lots of Tuesday “Club” evenings we have been able to sit outside overlooking the cricket pitch for post run drinks. It’s a lovely setting, you can’t really beat ... Read More

We had a good Race for Life volunteer contingent at Mote Park for their obstacle 5k that took place on 7th July 2019. We were asked initially if we wanted to get involved by The Mote and of course we were very happy to oblige. A really good and surprisingly tiring event (for the marshals) and hopefully we will be there next year.
“The Face of Mote Runners”, Liane Foord, again made her way into the Kent Messenger for her age group win in the Mid Kent 5 miler on 14th July. Liane is in ... Read More
