This is fun and really sociable!
Free and great fun!
Started in Winter 2011, we have organised the FREE(voluntary charity donation….) weekly run with head torches strapped to our heads! Runners from all over the area come together and share some new running venues across the Wolds, and occasionally just off piste!
- Normally 30 plus runners attend
- We cater for all speeds, as long as you are able to comfortably run the distance specified and not walk.
- Make sure you have a good head torch and bright clothing
- Distances of between 5 and 9 miles are covered
- Meet at a local pub for a good natter about all things running, and have a drink and a bite to eat afterwards.(optional)
All runs will start at 6.30pm unless otherwise stated and full details of where to meet and the route will be shown on here and the Facebook page
Please note…your attendance at these runs is purely voluntary. You must turn up dressed in the correct clothing for the weather conditions which is bright/reflective. You must have a torch which is in good working order. Mobile phones and foil blankets will be taken in the event there is a medical situation. None of the ‘organisers’ are responsible for your personal safety nor are they liable for any accidents which may occur.
