I hope you have all been enjoying the lovely weather. Hopefully it will continue as we have lots of exciting things coming up in the next few weeks.
Firstly, we have our Summer Social taking place at 7.30pm, at the Brewhouse & Kitchen on Friday 23rd June. The garden area should be the perfect location to enjoy food, music and good company.
As there are over 70 of our runners, walkers and leaders attending what could be a late night, all of our runs will take a little later than usual the following day. We will be meeting at 9.00am instead of 8.30am on Saturday 24th June
Charity Buggy Walk
On Wednesday 28th June we have our charity buggy walk to raise money for Acacia family support. We will be meeting at 10.15 and will be embarking on a walk around the park, lasting around an hour.
Wyndley have kindly allowed us to use the grassy area in the middle of the running track afterwards so will be safe for little ones to run around, while the adults can enjoy coffee and cake.
All are welcome so please tell your friends and family.
Our summer speedwork programme has started which means we will alternate track sessions with training in the park.
The sessions take place on a Thursday night at 8pm, and are suitable for all abilities so if you are looking to improve your speed and endurance come and join us.
Couch to 5K Graduation
Our latest Couch to 5K course is coming to an end and as usual we will be celebrating their success by joining Sutton Park Park run on Saturday 1st July.
Our normal Saturday morning runs will not be taking place as we encourage our members to support the C25K group by attending Park Run too.
It would be great to see as many of you there as possible
