Touch Rugby training

Touch Rugby

TOUCH RUGBY : Old Suttonians Rugby Club are running touch rugby in the park all through the summer. We meet at 10am on a Saturday morning in Nonsuch Park (school entrance where the military fitness set up) and run for an hour(ish) just to keep the hands warm and fitness up during the off season.

If you are interested in playing, please join the group in the link below and follow the updates weekly. We can accommodate all levels of ability as long as you are older than 11 and it is completely non-contact. It’s very relaxed and great fun, also a good way to work off that hangover! If you’re looking at getting back into the game after some time out or just looking for a bit of fitness, it’s a great way to stay sharp during the summer.

Nonsuch Junior Park Run

Nonsuch Junior Parkrun meet every Sunday at 9:00am outside Nonsuch Mansion House.   They hold a timed 2km run, for youngsters aged 4 -14.

This Sunday they had a whopping 178 runners on Sunday. Well done everybody.

Nonsuch Parkrun is free!  But you do need to register before your first run.  You only ever need to register with Parkrun once.  But don’t forget to bring a printed copy of your barcode with you when you come for a run.

And now they need our help.  Please can you volunteer for just half an hour on a Sunday?  They need some people  to slip on a hi-viz jacket and do a spot of marshalling, in addition to 2 people to act as tail runners and look after the stragglers.

Email their volunteer co-ordiantor on: nonsuch-juniorshelpers@parkrun.com.
