Junior training update

Dallam School have been able to accommodate their examination sessions in January on the Milnthorpe site rather than at Heversham but John hadn’t been told. This means that his indoor sessions in the Sportshall can resume next week 23rd January.
If you are able to pass this message on to others, it would be appreciated.

As the route is on slightly more remote ground this year please ensure that you bring suitable waterproof and warm clothing along ,and as there is no food drop you may need a drink and a snack.
Distance around 9 miles with possible short cuts on route but check this with Dowy or Dave Hewitt if you plan not to do the full route.Now see 15th Dec post for route map.

This will be a similar type of hot buffet as before but this year it's upstairs in Wilf's (not the River Bar). Drinks will be from the Hawkshead Brewery next door.
Also it's a slightly later gathering for the meal as we can't use Wilf's until 4.45 pm.

Haweswater Half Marathon 5th March 2017

Info from Wade Tidbury about next year's race.

"Each year for 16 years we have successfully put on the Haweswater Half Marathon. Next year's race takes place on Sunday the 5th of March. The race has been described by runners who travel to our county to run it as one of the most scenic in England. Runners run along the length of Haweswater with the stunning backdrop of the Lake District fells.
As a small running club, in a rural part of the country, we enjoy welcoming runners to run this race from all over the UK.
The link to the race details is  http://www.edenrunners.co.uk/haweswater.html

Many thanks in anticipation.
Wade Tidbury"
