 A return to some group running 

Running in organised groups of up to 6 people is allowed outside and has been risk assessed. Please only run on quieter country roads and off road. Please do not arrange groups around town, it is very difficult to maintain a safe 2m distance due to stopping at roads etc. More details and guidance on the website. Look forward to seeing you all soon.

Ekiden Virtual Relay 

Good luck to all our teams running the virtual Ekiden relay this weekend.


The Great Virtual Race Across Tennessee

Special mention goes to Peter Banks who has already reached Tennessee and is on the way back. Well done. The other 20 brave souls are following close behind.

Running Buddies 

Thank you to all those who took the survey. Further details will be out soon.

Spell that Word 

Week four of the virtual Tuesday challenge “spell that word” using street signs. This week’s word aims to put some fun in the run. Full details on the FB group.
