We thought you wouldn't want to wait for a mailing list distribution, so instead we developed Race Alerts. Subscribing to Race Alerts costs you nothing and means that you are notified of events that match your criteria within 24 hours of the race organiser adding the details to the Running Diary database.

Previously a member of the London club Metros and Chiltern Harriers A.C., I now live and work in Hampshire. I'm a keen runner and I enjoy track and road running, though I'm unlikely to break any world records at either! Some years back, whilst looking on the Internet for a road race, I found plenty of lists of races, but I struggled to find a definitive event database that gave me the search facilities that I wanted. That's why I came up with the idea to set up Running Diary as a free service for fellow runners. What I didn't have was the experience of putting together a professional web site. This is where my friend and colleague Jeremy comes in.
Whilst not a particularly accomplished runner, I do enjoy a couple of laps around our place of work at lunchtime - I think it makes Chris feel better about himself while I puff and wheeze my way around before he sprints off for yet another lap! What I lack in athleticism, I try to make up for in programming and web site creation. I've created a number of sites over the past few years, under the guise of adBurst and IT Help Limited. When Chris suggested I lock myself away in my office for months coding Running Diary I was out of breath (see above) and I don't think he quite heard me cough "no" - so here it is.... enjoy :o)
