Saints are a social Band, who like to get together for fun and to take on challenges other than just music. With many in the band with an interest in running, it made sense that this would spur some of the band to take on park runs in the local area together.
Both Kevin and Joan Barker are already very active in the running community; Joan herself having run over 40 park runs to date.
Having encouraged some of the band to join them, Kevin, Joan, Sian and Leighton took on the Forest Five on Wednesday 16th June. A five-mile run through Swinley Forest, it’s a tough course with a steep hill for 3 miles, but all 4 members of the band enjoyed it and made it home. They haven’t received their official times yet, but Leighton was the first home in around 40 minutes.
It’s a great achievement by the Saints Runners.
Well Done Guys!!!
