    Whitewebbs Run Sunday 23rd Dec 2018

    Something different for Xmas.
    Only one short route planned but a choice of running it in either direction.
    If there are enough runners we form 2 “teams” on the day. A clockwise team and an anticlockwise team.
    Pass somewhere en route and all back for an early cuppa.
    Emphasis is on club spirit not speed.
    Wear something Christmassy if you like.
    There will be an add-on option for anyone wanting to do a longer run.
    Routes posted soon so have a look and decide which way round you fancy running.
    Will only work if we have enough runners.

      Sorry can’t make Sunday I’m at another Santa Dash 🙂 shame as it sounds fun. I will hopefully see some of you at one of the Xmas day parkruns? Maybe Grovelands. Presume club runs aren’t on again for a while?

      • Simon Harrison says:

        The calendar has been updated but in short:
        There are club runs on 20th and 27th.
        No club runs Xmas Day and New Year’s day.
        Sunday runs – will continue.

      • Ilia says:

        I plan to run both Christmas Day and New Year Day parkruns at Grovelands. There were several ERC runners there last couple of years – I don’t think it will be diffrent this time.

        • Andrew Florides says:

          It’s a double park run on New Years day. 9.00am at Grovelands then 10.30am at Oak Hill. Some people run between the two park runs, others drive it.
