A big thank you to all 48 runners who turned out today to celebrate our 6th Birthday with us this morning. It was lovely to see you all!
It was a great morning on a course that was somewhat slippy in places.
We had 8 fantastic first-timers (who appeared to enjoy themselves) and a smashing 13 PBs were achieved, great to see all the training you're putting in is paying dividends.
I want to take a moment to thank Paul and Sue with whom this all started 6 years ago. If it wasn't for you we wouldn't be here, thank you.
Next month will be our Easter event and I have it on good authority there may be chocolate!
Well done to all 23 runners who participated in today's Canter, Congratulations to those speedsters who achieved new PBs!
Big shout out to my glamorous assistants without whom it wouldn't happen 👏
29 of you turned up this morning depite the wet start to the day. Thankfully the rain stopped just long enough to make conditions perfect! Well done to everyone who ran and special thanks to all the wonderful volunteers who made it possible!
23 runners turned out to run the course on a rather chilly and damp morning (well it is summer). Fortunately, the torrential downpour passed leaving a slightly more tolerable drizzle in time for the start. Well done to all who ran!
Thanks to Nick, Annabelle, Claire and Grace for your help.
Twenty-two runners turned out on this lovely sunny but fresh morning. Well done to everyone who ran and thank you to all our supporters your help is much appreciated.
Forty runners lined up on the start line this morning, including four first-timers, well done to everyone who ran. It certainly looks like we had the best of the day. There were also ten new PBs achieved!
A big thank you to all the volunteers and supporters we couldn't have done it without you!
See you in May.
What a morning to be running! Strong winds and intermittent rain were not the ideal conditions - so well done to all the C2K runners for completing the course this morning. Also big thanks to all the marshals who turned out (much appreciated!).
Results will be a little later this time. Hopefully tomorrow...?
Colliers Wood Canter on 9th March will the graduation for the Couch to 5k runners. Expect loads of runners! Please car-share if you can, due to limited parking spaces.
Please come and support (and marshal, if you can)
Well done to everyone who braved the rather bracing conditions this morning. Very stiff head wind going along the top path!
Thanks to Claire Minoprio for helping with the results also, and Kara and Max for helping with marshalling.
Many thanks to Rob Gooch, Chris Chandler and Kara Minoprio for helping with the marshaling today. Thankfully the rain held off.
Next race is October 13th.
Photo at the finish added today.
When I ran across the grass this morning, and my feet sank into the mud I didn't think we would have many runners today. So well done to the 43 of you who completed the run today.
Special mention must go to the Anthony family. Chris won the race, Lauren was first lady back and Oliver won the 3k! Impressive.
Special thanks to Steve Haskard, Dan and Lewis Gooch, and Gary Taylor's daughter for helping me out on the day.
Conditions under foot were terrible today - I almost fell over 3 times just marshaling. Congratulations to all runners today for doing it in such bad conditions. The C25k runners certainly earned their certificates today.
Special thanks to Ash and Chris for helping with the marshaling.
The next race is 14th April, and will be the 50th!
The next run is March 10th, and I hope it will be warmer than it was today. Well done to the runners who braved the weather today.
March 10th will also be the graduation run for the latest couch to 5k runners.
The next run (9th December) will be our festive run, so please dress up for the run - if you want to! We'll try and make it special - don't know how yet though.
Next race is 14th October. At this run I will be giving away 6 bottles of Nutty Brown (6.1% abv) by the Cat Asylum brewery. Hope to see you then.
Next race is Saturday 8th July. Hope to see you then!
Well done to all 35 runners today. Nice and fresh, although the wind made it tougher than usual.
Not many courses that you get swans and herons as by-standers either!
Next race is 10th June
13th May - 9am
Well done to the 22 runners who turned out today in that bitter wind to run our course. What a start to 2020, we're looking forward to what the rest of the year will bring!
As always thanks to the hardy volunteers who came along to ease the organisation. Your help is appreciated :-)
Well done to the 22 runners that turned up despite that bitter wind to run our course. What a start to 2020, we're really looking forward to seeing what the rest of the year brings!
As always thanks to the hardy volunteers, your help with the organisation makes things much easier.
A fabulous turnout for our last canter of the year with Forty runners braving the cold to cross the start line. I think the lure of mince pies and mulled wine may have had something to do with that! Well done to everyone who ran and thank you for supporting us this year. Looking forward to seeing you in 2020!
We had 23 runners turn out this morning and a special presentation for Lauren Anthony who won the U20 trophy at the Goose Fair Gallop the previous weekend, well done!
Thanks as always to the volunteers Pam, Josh and Helen W.
31 runners (four first-timers) lined up on the start line of what was a fresh but beautiful morning. It was near perfect conditions and six new PBs were achieved. Well done to everyone who ran and a special thank you to all our volunteers.
29 of you turned up this morning despite the wet start to the day. Thankfully the rain stopped just long enough for us and conditions were just about perfect for running. Well done everyone who ran and thanks to all the wonderful volunteers who made it possible!
It was almost like a cross country today. Almost fell over 3 times just marshaling. Congratulations to all the runners today, in what were the worst conditions I have seen on the course.
Special thanks to Ash and Chris for helping with the marshaling.
The next race is on the 14th April - it will be our 50th run!
Photo's from April's race now uploaded. Thanks to Caty for being CWC photographer for the day!
A new course record today! Bruce Raeside took over a minute off the previous time, finishing in 16.56.
Well done to all the Couch to 5k runners who graduated today - you all did really well.
Well done to all who ran today. It was a bit cold and very slippy on the grass.
Special mention to Pam and Hattie Tivey who turned up late but still managed a couple of laps!
Positively balmy December day for a run. Well done to all those running slightly the worse for wear after the xmas meal and disco last night. Thanks for Dave Saunders for helping out (and taking pictures).
HI everyone. Thanks for turning out (on another wet CWC!). Thumbs up was the theme and thumbs up to Andy Haskard who was looking well.
Congratulations to all who ran today. Weather was good for a change, as well.
If you ran today, there is a picture of you on this web-site, courtesy of Daz Dodsley (thanks Daz!).
It seems that the Colliers Wood Canter has got it's own micro climate. No matter what the weather forecast says, it rains!
Anyway well done to all who ran today.
Nice dry weather for the canter for a change. Well done to Helen Woods who not only won, but created a new female record!
The Colliers Wood curse (bad weather) stayed away today, thank goodness.
Must praise Helen Woods who ran a female record (again!) today
Pictures to follow
All it needed today was the Ark! All you stars who ran today must have been absolutely soaked to the skin (I know we were). Apologies if your time isn't right but the paper was disintegrating by the time we got home. I think most are right though.

A couple of big personal bests today - well done John Parker and Sharon Granger who both took over a minute from their previous times, and to Donna Paull who has now set 3 consecutive P.B.'s.
Still very muddy, and we had Andy sliding through the finish today. Well done to those who did P.B.'s today, and congratulations to Chris Anthony who got under 20 minutes.
