New club members to take on half marathon

FOUR members of a new running club are to take part in this year’s Henley half marathon next month.

The Henley Harriers have been formed by Tony Robinson, a sports therapist with Athlete Service at Henley Enterprise Park, off Greys Road.

It already has about 25 members who meet at 6.45pm every Thursday on the towpath outside Leander Club.

Mr Robinson, 34, who lives in Mill Lane, said the Harriers were the town’s first affiliated running club, adding: “I feel interest in running in Henley will grow through this.”

The quartet of Barry Keane, Charlotte Wright, Rob Griffiths and Nicky Aitken will be among hundreds of runners taking part in the half marathon and the Henley Standard 10km race, which takes place at the same time, on Sunday, October 12.
