Windmilers #RunAndTalk

  Thanks everyone who took part in our Run & Talk Week event on Sunday and a big thank you to dedicated coaches, David, Paul, Amy and James for their support. We were blessed with fine weather for late September and the 25 or so of us who took part created a really positive atmosphere. We had some great conversations on the theme of gratitude and It was lovely to gather and have a relaxed post-run get together by the Windmill.

Tributes to one of our oldest members, Joyce Smith

Windmilers may have heard the sad news that one of our oldest members, Joyce Smith, passed peacefully away in August.

Joyce's son Stephen has been in touch to say that he and his sister Vicki were with her, and that it was a peaceful passing with no pain. Joyce, he goes on to say, really did consider the Windmilers as a big second family where she spent so much of her time after she caught the running bug!

Run and Talk Week September 20-26

     The Windmilers are proud to support the England Athletics’ Run and Talk initiative focused on improving mental wellbeing through running.

Wimbledon Windmilers - updated Covid-19 plan and risk assessment April 2021

Club running sessions will be restarting from Sunday 11th April 2021. Club sessions operate according to government and sports body guidelines.

Staying safe on a run - from welfare officers Rich and Lorna

The recent (and local) abduction and murder of Sarah Everard has raised the issue of women’s safety. Whilst society as a whole needs to review how we treat women (a conversation for a long run with either of us, if you feel so inclined), as a multi-sport club our concern is primarily about the safety of our members when out exercising. There has been plenty of debate on social media channels about the responsibilities of men and women in fostering a safe environment, but to summarise - there are certainly some things we can all do in this regard.

Recommendation to wear an ICE product at Windmiler sessions (discount code available)

The Wimbledon Windmilers Committee has agreed to recommend that all Windmilers consider wearing an ‘In case of emergency’ (ICE) product during Windmilers running, cycling or swimming sessions, or carry emergency contact details with them. Coaches will encourage members to do so at their sessions.
