Stainland Lions registered a record turnout for the first session of their annual beginners’ course at Heath Rugby club where the new clubhouse was packed with 153 runners signing up.
John Bassinder, from the club, said: “The sight of so many people of all ages and all levels of fitness wanting to give it a try was something that even the experienced Lions found inspiring.
“There was a fantastic atmosphere from the off and during the warm up, throughout the various paced runs and at the end as all the groups met back at Heath, there was a real buzz with everybody obviously enjoying themselves, talking together, making new friends and planning their return next week.
“People are welcome to come along and sign up at any time, nobody need feel that they will be left behind as there are groups for all abilities and lots of club members looking after each group.”
