Social runs

The club has a different social run every week. In the summer they're always on the fells. In the winter there are more hilly road runs, but we'll still take any excuse (if it's a full moon, or nice weather, or interestingly nasty weather) to go up on the fells instead.

We usually run 6 or 7 miles at an easy pace with frequent regrouping. Sometimes a fast group will decide to go further or a slow group to stay lower: it varies each week with the terrain and the turnout.

Every couple of months we have a semi-formal meeting that deals briefly with any club business before getting onto the important subject of where we should run next. If this list is quite short, that means we're about to make a new one. To stay up to date, you can get either the whole BCR calendar or just the social runs as an automatically-updated calendar feed.
