Good morning, Don’t forget there are no official sessions tonight . It’s our ‘naked run’.  Can those who have kindly volunteered please get there for around 6.15pm!  The route will be revealed tonight along with instructions, please please familiarise yourself with the route.

Tuesday 20th November Announcement!

Training
Important: Hi all, due to its popularity in previous years, this year we will be doing another ‘naked’ run. For those that have never done one of these it’s where you run without any technology to tell you how you’re doing for your time! You write down the time you think you’ll complete the course in, and at the end whoever is closest to their predicted time, wins. Simple as that! The course will be an ‘unusual’ distance (no longer than 5 miles) and it won’t be revealed until 10 minutes before we are due to set off. This will take place on TUESDAY 20th November. That’s 2 weeks tomorrow. Hope many of you can attend. ?
