Training update for next Tuesday

As most of you are aware Wrangaton Golf course has been closed since last September. It has now been bought and will reopen in May. We hope that we can return for the monthly Spirit of the Moor runs at some stage but in the meantime we have decided to offer the option of meeting at South Brent and doing a moorland run from there.
The first one is next Tuesday (16th) and members need to meet at the car park in South Brent for a 6pm start.
There will still be a Couch to 5K session from the Rugby club plus a session for those who do not wish to travel up to South Brent.
Hopefully this will all work out well.

We have a junior presentation evening on Friday 26th April at the Cricket club in Filham Park. We are planning a fun relay at 6pm that night with the awards and buffet at 7pm.
All seniors are welcome to take part in the relay and come along to the awards. We just need to know numbers. If you would like to attend the awards then please email me.
