Throughout the spring and summer, when we have lighter evenings, our usual Wednesday run moves from Melton to the villages in the surrounding area. The usual routine is to meet outside a village pub, run for an hour over the local footpaths and then most runners stay for a drink afterwards.
These runs are sociable and run as a group, regularly stopping at stiles, junctions, etc, to keep everyone together. So that everyone gets a good, enjoyable run we will usually split into two groups, allowing those who want to stretch their legs and go a little further and/or faster to do so. As with all our runs, they are led by our members, so if you have a suitable route to suggest for the future, let us know.
We do also have a few special runs that form part of our summer programme – the “No watch” race and club handicap are always fun evenings, as is the 3 club challenge that we hold with Barrow and Wreake (2018 was our turn to host, 2019 will be Barrow’s turn, so 2020 will be at Wreake). More details of each will be announced in due course.
