Tuesday Announcements 21st April

21 April 2020 - By Bill Smythe

“I run because if I didn’t, I’d be sluggish and glum and spend too much time on the couch. I run to breathe the fresh air. I run to explore. I run to escape the ordinary. I run…to savour the trip along the way. Life becomes a little more vibrant, a little more intense. I like that.”
Dean Karnazes

It was great to see (on Facebook) so many people at the virtual pub run this week with many staying for a drink and food. We had 44 runners visiting 34 different pubs with 19 staying for food and / or drink. There will be a new feed for this week’s run. Well done to anyone who ran the Bromley Virtual 10k on Sunday, there were some great times on Strava. Results have been posted.

Race 4 of the SD champs will be 5 Miles starting on Thursday 23rd April to Sunday 26th April. See post for further details.

If you are in self isolation and need some support please reach out to WRC, I am sure all members would be happy to help. There is also a post from Jason and Jo, our welfare reps on the website
