Ditch the Watch – 9th September 2017

On Saturday the 9th September we held an event at Milford called Ditch the Watch. The idea of this event was to see how well people knew their own running. All runners had to predict their time to complete and unknown 5k route with a £50 cash prize up for grabs for the winner. It was a rather damp event but fun was had by all. Thank you to Steve Burnham and Dec Martin for organising this event and to all our lovely marshals that stood out in the rain! Below you will find feedback from some of the runners 🙂        “On Saturday 9th September at midday Chase Harriers assembled on Milford common to collect our allotted numbers and […]

Rob Lloyd Memorial Run

Although it is somewhat bittersweet, I am pleased to be able to finally announce that we have a date in the diary for a memorial get-together for our friend and fellow Harrier Rob Lloyd. On Tuesday 12th September we will be cancelling the normal club run and instead facilitating a get-together based around the parkrun route from Marquis Drive. The Harriers will be marshalling and doing the general organisation and we are hoping that as many of Rob’s friends as possible will be able to attend. We plan to get started at 6:30pm and are going to promote it as a run / walk as people want. More information will follow in the next couple of weeks but I’m going […]

Ditch the Watch!

On Saturday September 9th we have Ditch the Watch! This is a 5km run (very accurate) in where you are forbidden to wear any watch or electronic device. Before the run you give Steve Burnham or myself your predicted time. The winner will be who ever guesses closest to their time. It doesnt matter if you run 5 minute miles or 15 minute miles….it is all about how well you know your own running. The course will be kept secret until the day of the race. If you would like to enter then please inform myself or Steve of your predicted time. The event will take place next to Milford Common. Meet at 12pm on the carpark and we will all walk up […]

5 Miles 5 pubs

5 mile 5 pubs is a 5ish mile walk on Saturday 5th August around the Cannock Wood Area. We will meet at The Park Gate Inn for 11:30 and the event will involve visiting a number of pubs, including The Nelson Inn for lunch. The route can be seen on the map below. The event itself is free but you will require money for drinks and food. Fingers crossed the weather will be nice 🙂

Staffs Knot 2017

The Staffs Knot is a yearly 5 mile race hosted by Stafford Harriers. It is also one of the NSRRA events. This year saw a new one lap course starting from Marquis Drive. Being so local, this event is usually well attended by the Chase Harriers and this year was no different with 16 club members taking part. It was a cool, dry evening – which made for good running conditions – although the rain from earlier in the week led to one section of the course being quite muddy. The new course was varied in terrain, keeping you on your toes and of course, being on the Chase, there were a few hills thrown in for good measure. Sculli […]

July Time Trial

So the 2nd time trial is Thursday 14th July …. White House at 6:30pm as normal for a steady jog up to Marquis to warm those legs up before as flat a 1 mile course as Cannock Chase can offer…. RUN! RUN! RUN! Then a steady 4 miles(ish) for anyone who fancies it. Something different… something fun… see you there!
