LATEST NEWS FROM THE TAMAR TROTTERS
Could this summer change your life?
Couch to 5K is a fantastic programme that's been designed to get just about anyone from the couch to running 5 kilometres in the space of 10 weeks. It is an international programme, but we’re launching our own version right here in sunny Saltash. This is open to complete beginners, those thinking about a return to running or someone who might have been injured and wants to steadily return to hitting the roads once again. Starting on Friday July 7th, you’ll work with our experienced leaders to steadily build your fitness and – we hope – successfully complete your goals.
Meet at the Saltash Rugby Club on Fridays by 6pm for a 6:15pm start
There is more information through the link below, or for more information, contact John Smith 01752 844281 or 07946 453215.

New Tuesday nights training schedule
Those of you who have been to Tuesday's club nights over the past couple of weeks will know we have made some changes to our training plans. This is part of a 13-week schedule put together by our Club Development Officer Steve Baker designed to improve our spring marathon and half marathon prospects. There has been some great feedback so far and hopefully you're looking forward to what the next few weeks have in store. You can find out more about the plan and join the conversation about it in our news Tamar Trotters Training Tips Facebook page.
2019 Club Grand Prix under way
The 2019 Club Grand Prix is now under way. This is your chance to win prizes regardless of your pace, and to enjoy some friendly rivalry against all club members. We are aiming for one race per month (from a choice of 2) and will give one point simply based on representing our club. The aim is to build club spirit and encourage runners to enter South West races. Where there is sufficient demand we will try to put coaches on for some of these. There are 23 races in total to choose from and we will give prizes to those completing at least 10 events. Two of these points can be received by marshalling at our club races (Saltash half and Mag 7)
Prizes will be presented at the AGM evening. Find out more about the Grand Prix.
