Hamworthy Harriers
June Newsletter

Not a very eventful month for runners, but a few memorable events.
Ian had his knee operation at the beginning of the month and seemed to go very well.  Not any running this month but lots of walking.
Upton Country Park held their first Park Run on the 3rd June.  There were 322 runners with Mike Hughes, Mark and Jeannette from the Club there.  The legendry Geoff was given the important job of funnel manager. 
Poole Festival of Running was held on the weekend of 3rd and 4th June.  It was very well attended and several Club members taking part in the 10k, they included Mike Hurst, Jeannette, Pete, Kate and Bob Bennett. Geoff again gave his time to marshal us all around the course.

Another Club walker was Mike Hughes.  He, Helen and two others walking the Great Glenn Way.  A great experience, now planning the next one.
Other runs that club members have taken part in this month were the Puddletown ½ and Purbeck 10k around Corfe Castle.  There was a strong showing in both with everyone posting good times.
Club run on a Monday evening up on the Heath and Mike decided to fall.  After shouting man down Rufus came and gave mouth to mouth, before being beaten off by Mike. Mike Hurst and Mark came running back, but not before switching off their watches, true runners! 
Helen took Mike to A&E where he had his dislocated finger reset.  Apparently, it hurt a little, thank god for gas and air! Sarah did say not serious enough to miss the Holt Lees Relays.
Just a reminder: Saturday August 12th 7pm, Harriers 30th Anniversary Dinner. £10 per person to include food and many memories. Please let Mike Hughes know if you can make it.
