Ed: For the benefit of recent new members, Sid is our specialist over distances 5 to 10K and normally races regularly and competitively! Sid has more recently stepped onto the track to improve his speed and reports:
Been travelling, computer broke, minor illness , so been out of orbit a bit in July.
I write to inform of Track and Field opportunity for Vegan Runners. As not a club
situ for Vegan Runners i have been taking part in the Southern Vets , Hants and Surrey League Track and Field representing Southampton AC . Most recently running the 800 metres on July 4th in a time of 2mins 26.7secs.
Having won the league we are now off to the area finals held Ashford Kent in September.
Fortunately most clubs hold a track and field open day where everyone can choose which events they wish to do and can therefore run individually for Vegan Runners. It usually costs £2:50 to enter each event. So any aspiring Vegan 100 metre runners or Long Jumpers out there, with the whole of August and September still to come, i am sure there is a track and field open to all event near you soon.
