Annual Club Trip – Options


The crew off for a pre-run pint!

During discussions at recent committee meetings it was proposed that we should revive the “Club Trips” and some suggestions have been put forward for this year. We’ve tried to choose events that can be done in a day although the preferred option would be to take advantage of the transport and accommodation arranged by the club and to join the post-run meal and social gathering (costs to follow).

Although these events may seem quite a long way off we need time for everyone to be able to check their availability. We’ll soon be looking for suggestions for spring next year so watch this space. Meanwhile please consider the events below:

Loch Ness Marathon & Festival of Running – 27 September 2015
All on road. There’s a marathon, 10k or 5k (an adult would have to run with children under 8)

Kielder Marathon – 3/4 October 2015
Trail events. There’s a 10k on 3 Oct, Run/Bike/Run (11k/25k/6k) on 3 Oct. A marathon and half marathon on 4 Oct.

Lakeland Trails – Dirty Double Weekend – 7/8 November 2015
Hellvelyn on 7 Nov has a 10k, 15k Challenge ( for less competitive runners and fit walkers) and a 15k ( for competitive runners).
Ullswater on the 8th November has a 10k and 14k Challenge ( for less competitive runners and fit walkers- time limit 3 1/2 hours), a 14k Challenge for less competitive runners ( time limit 3 hours) and a 14k Race for competitive runners ( time limit 2 hours).

If any parent of a child in the club would like to join us, you are more than welcome. You still have plenty of time to train up for any of these events and we can help you with this.
