Hello everyone. I hope you're all keeping safe and well in this new period of lockdown. Just a reminder that all group training is cancelled until the end of the lockdown. You are still allowed to exercise with members of your household or bubble, or with one person from outside of your household.

New Club Members 

Please join me in extending a very warm RPAC welcome to Mateo Mahop who has recently joined the club. Welcome Mateo and I look forward to meeting you sometime in the not too distant future. 

Christmas Come Early

Just in time to start your Christmas shopping, the iProsports Club Zone has been updated to include lots of new items of kit and accessories. Some items are available in dark blue as an alternative to the normal red. There are even club bobble hats just for you Linda Rodriguez smile  There are also size guides for many of the items now which should make the kit a bit easier to order.  

Virtual Competitions

You will remember that during the Spring lockdown we ran a series of virtual competitions. To get us started this time we recently received the following email from Graham Smith who is Robin Dewar-Smith's brother, about a virtual competition called Fly5K... 

"Several months ago during the first lockdown I set up a free weekly Saturday morning virtual 5k, and wondered if your club members might be interested in taking part. We have members of around 30 clubs taking part each week and an average of 140 runners of all abilities and ages. It's intended to be a bit more race focused than (non)parkrun, being at a specific time (8-12 on Saturday morning), and we also have an inter club competition every three weeks, the next one being this Saturday 7th Nov. Club runners can submit times from other events or 5k sections from longer runs too. Our Facebook group is the key !.. as it means we can actually share our race efforts, etc. and get to know a wider group of people beyond our own clubs whilst normal racing can't take place. If this sounds of interest and you think RPAC members might like to take part then all they need to do is have a look at our website www.runfly5k.com and if they're on Facebook they can join us at facebook.com/groups/fly5k. There's no need to register and anyone can take part. We've had great feedback about how motivating it is for people right now, so hopefully we can spread that wider to members of clubs like yours. "

It would be good to support Graham and there seem to be some quick times so it could be a good opportunity to get some RPAC runners up amongst the leaders.

Members' Results

Jack Finn recorded a new half marathon PB on Sunday, running the virtual Gatwick Half Marathon in 1:58:04. Well done Jack!
