SLGR AKA #teamSLGR AKA Orange and Black Army is one of, if not the best running clubs for welcoming newcomers and supporting fellow runners, we have been at races of all distances and always waited to cheer the last runner over the line and in some cases run the last bit of the race with them.
On Sunday we had 27 runners at The Darent Valley 10K, it is a local race so a great chance to show off our orange & black shirts. The course is not an easy one with a very tough hill about 7k into the run.
As usual we waited until everyone had finished so we could get an ‘after photo’ to go with the ‘before one’. A special mention must goes to Luke Oxlade who has recently joined us and Sunday was his first 10K race and he was pleased with his time and is eagerly looking to book his next one, which is always a good thing.
Watch out for us at other races across the area and also further afield.
We don’t only support each other at races but over the last couple of years we have organised training programs for runners doing 1/2 Marathons, Marathons and a little run in the country called the North Downs Run.
Last year a group of about 14 went up to Inverness to run in The Loch Ness Marathon and the 10k, we all did the long training runs together as much as possible which normally ended in a well earned breakfast. The same is happening this year with the Edinburgh Marathon and half Marathon and this time we have even more runners going.
