It is hosted by Google Groups under the group name EpsomOddballs, and is exclusively for the use of members of the Epsom Oddballs Running Club, although it is open to anyone to view members' posts. Under normal circumstances, members of Epsom Oddballs Running Club are automatically registered as members of the group. If you (as a member of Epsom Oddballs Running Club) find that you do not have access, please send an email to the Epsom Oddballs webmaster.
