On Tuesday 25th October we have a Sports Massage therapist coming to meet after the run to talk.  Adele Fowler is a qualified soft tissue/sports massage therapist, and is very keen to pass on her knowledge and share her expertise with our running club, to help enable our members to continue to compete/run, follow your dreams and compete injury free.   “Though I am not a competitive athlete myself, in the past I have been very frustrated when I’ve been struck down by injury, and since becoming a therapist have learned that perhaps if I was more aware of and address strengths and weaknesses in my body, these injuries could have been avoided. I can only assume that this knowledge and expertise is immeasurable when one is actively competing.”

If you have any niggles and would like advise on, please feel free to ask Adele. Adele will be holding a prize draw for a free massage too, join in iand find out how to win on the night.

Adele Fowler MSMA , Optimum Body, 07703 484063 , www.obsportsmassage.com , RockDoc (level 2) in Kinesiology taping


"The committee are happy for Adele to come and talk to you 'the members' but we are not suggesting that you use Adele's services. If you choose to do so, you do at your own risk".

Safety notice

Unfortunately the committee have been made aware of a horrible event that took place in Didcot last night, where a woman in her thirties was reported to have been sexualyl assulted by a man in Edmonds Park. The committee feels that we should remind the membership that you are all adviced to carry your moblie phones while running and where possible buddy up with someone of similar pace or better yet stick together in groups. We can not enforce these concepts upon you but we highly recommend them especially during the Autumn and Winter months where the dark nights add extra risk.
