Christina has arranged a clothing collection for next Wednesday, 29th July.

On the 8th July there will be a prediction run instead of normal club night. There will be no training based at Green Bank Leisure Centre, instead we will be meeting at the Mushroom Hall car park in Albert Village. The start will be there and the finish on Albert Village Lake. Attached is a map of the course which includes 1 and a half loops of the lake. The course is 4.34 miles.The idea is that you tell us on the night what time you predict you will run the course, we write it down and you run the course WITHOUT a watch! There is a prize for the closest male and closest female to their prediction therefore speed is nothing!!!!. After the run we will go into the Mushroom Hall pub for a nice cold drink and presentation.
Occupation Road (where we are meeting) has space to park along one side of the road as well as on some of the side streets. If you have any queries, please speak to either Andy or Christina
