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.

Boxing Day 5 

The committee will be meeting to discuss if we should run the Boxing Day 5 this year. With the additional measures needed to keep runners safe there would be a need for a larger number of volunteers to ensure this is successful and could be done safely. We would also need extra first aid cover.

Please complete poll on FB.
