FLJ Update -8th November

I hope everyone had a good weekend ? It was a pretty blustery one, but well done if you managed to get out for a run.

Leader Training - tonight at 7.45

A reminder that tonight, we have a new leader training session at the Great Western after our run. We don’t hold these too often so if you are interested in finding out more about becoming a run leader, then come along on a ‘no commitment’ basis.

Obviously the club needs leaders to be able to operate, and we always need more people coming through to help. Even if you don’t feel ready to take on leading the runs, there are loads of other ways you can help support the club.

Club Kit

Harris is our man for new club kit. If you haven’t already got FLJ tshirts, buffs or hoodies then get your order in.

It’s great to feel part of a team, so make sure you are decked out in purple

There’s an order form in the ‘Files’ section of the FB Group, and you can message Harris Anderson or email him on

GEF Safari Series - Hazlehead 5k

The GEF Autumn Series 5k takes part on Sunday morning at 10am.

Entries are now closed but we have a good crowd from the FLJs attending. If you fancy cheering them on then head up to Hazlehead on Sunday Morning

Gathimba Edwards 3k - 5th December

This is the last run in the series and takes place at Prime Four in Kingswells.

We’ll organise an FLJ team the same as before, but hope to swell the numbers with the addition of many of our C25k runners.

C25k Graduation Lunch - 5th Dec

We would normally hold a graduation dinner for our C25k runners, but as you’ll be finishing December , when there are so many other things on, we thought we might hold a lunch instead, and tie this in with the GEF 3k.

Watch this space, but keep your diaries clear for lunch on Sunday 5th December.

This would be open to all FLJs.

Prosecco Run & Awards

We will end the year with our traditional Prosecco run and awards night on Wednesday 22nd December. The awards committee are in place and it promises to be an amazing night.

It is suitable for everyone (even if you are injured or no longer running) as we go roughly a mile between three houses with drinks at each and then awards at the end.

We are still looking for a venue for our final location if anyone wishes to offer up their house?

Plogging Sundays

Sophie Cruickshank is going to be organising some Sunday Plogging events, with the first one hopefully later this month. Keep an eye on this pages for dates, but it would just be an hour on a Sunday morning.

C25k Update

Our latest Couch to 5k runners move on to Week 6 this week, having taken on the ‘20-minute run’ on Friday.

They are all doing amazing, and since most of you have ‘been there’ I’m sure you’ll know how great they feel about how far they’ve come over the last 5 weeks.

Have a great week everyone.
