I’m so glad it’s the weekend!

If you need a pair of runners or shorts to help you train for the Mini Marathon, this weekend could be a good time to get them. Elvery’s are offering a special 25pc off deal from March 5-8 on all Asics footwear and Regatta rainwear, both in stores and online at It's really important to have a good pair of running shoes if you want to prevent getting injured.

This Sunday March 8th is also International Women’s Day. Early marriage, violence against women, trafficking (sex and labour) and denial of rights including education still face millions of girls growing up today. By running to raise funds to support the Imperi Women’s Group in Sierra Leone, you’re doing your bit for female solidarity.

Take 2 minutes to watch this video, which shows the powerful social and economic effect brought about when girls are allowed to participate fully in society. Well worth watching
