“The reason we race isn’t so much to beat each other,… but to be with each other.”
Christopher McDougall 

A return to some group running 

A review of the guidance has been carried out by the committee.  We will be carrying out some pilot sessions over the next couple of weeks to ensure we can provide a Covid safe environment before we can look at a return to a more normal Tuesday group run. In the meantime if you want to run in smaller informal groups whilst maintaining social distancing join the running buddies. More details available from Liz Prior or myself.
