Science in Sport (PSP 22, Go, ReGo etc.) - May 2005 - Science in Sport (SiS) wins major award! - Congratulations to SiS for achieving the well-deserved distinction of being awarded the "Queen's Award for Enterprise". I've always had a high regard for the staff of SiS and their products so it's good to see that the Queen uses them when walking the corgis (allegedly!!). SiS have consistently supported events of all sizes and types (from small running events to major triathlons) across the UK and it's great that they have achieved major recognition for all their hard work and dedication. SiS won their award for their Go-Gel product, which was recognized in the “Innovation” category, which rewards companies that have demonstrated commercial success through innovative products or services.01254 246060Web site

Which way did they go?
Which way did they go? - a book by Andrew Bennett, author of "Middle of the Packer". Andrew started running in 1983 when he took part in the Five Towns Half Marathon in Pontefract. He hasn't stopped running since. This book relates to incidents and experiences at races in West Yorkshire, the North of England, further afield and overseas, trying to maintain a humorous theme throughout. Without ever having a chance of winning, Andrew enjoys the taking part, the atmosphere and the camaraderie with every race and course providing a different challenge, new experience and stories. You'll see much that is familiar within this book and may even find yourself in the same races as Andrew! It's well worth a read (get it for yourself, or even your club library). Order direct from Andrew for £5.00 including postage and packaging at 99 Wood Lane, Rothwell, Leeds, LS26 0PG.0113 282 6499.Email enquiries

209 Events
2:09 Events - founded by 1983 London Marathon winner Mike Gratton and represents his winning time in that event. While the world of marathon running at the highest level has moved on and getting under 2:05 is the target for elite runners, a 2:09 marathon still carries the prestige of that other land mark time – the 4 minute mile. 2:09 is a mark of high quality and dedication – it is these standards that 2:09 Events bring to the events it organises, the support it offers to those travelling to the special overseas events it offers and the training camps it is renowned for. 2:09's events are designed to suit all ability levels - from beginner to established sportsmen and women. On training camps we split participants into ability groups so that you will always be supported at the right level and are able to get as much benefit as the more experienced without feeling out of place: it really does work and no one feels left out. If you have trained to finish a marathon then don't be put off because you're more a-back-of-the-pack runner, you will have enough ability to get around and thoroughly enjoy these extraordinary events and will come home saying, "don't know what I was worried about".0870 3500 209Web site
