Most runners run not because they want to live longer, but because they want to live life to the fullest.
A return to some group running
Informal group running with a maximum of 6 people continues with the running buddies, if you want to run in one of these smaller informal groups whilst maintaining social distancing please speak to Liz Prior or myself.
