Social runs

Social runs are back! Again. The post-lockdown rules allow us to run outside in groups so we can have proper social runs again. There are still some rules though:
  • You have to add yourself to our Covid register for track and trace purposes. The information you put in there is used only for that purpose. Please make sure you do that before you come out for a run.
  • You must maintain 2m social distancing from anyone who is not part of your household.
  • You must carry your own own sanitiser and face mask (a buff is fine) in case you have to help someone off the fell.
  • You should also carry all the equipment you might need to help yourself off the fell in winter weather: personal first aid, medication, food, warm clothes, phone, big coat. And also:
  • Be aware of the risks involved in touching gates/stiles.
  • Run within yourself and not take unnecessary risks.
  • If you need to spit or blow your nose, do it well away from everyone else.

Pre-AGM run

06:15pm on 25 January at Kepplewray

Will is going to lead a six mile road and trail run that starts down the railway line and then comes back over Coal Gate to Foxfield and back to Broughton. Hopefully he’ll remember the right turn down the muddy track off the Woodland Road.

AGM at Kepplewray

07:30pm on 25 January at Kepplewray

Usually there is some kind of slightly rubbish Broughton run beforehand. Not sure if there is pie. Is there pie? If so you will be invited to book a seat some time in the weeks before.

You can always join us on Strava instead. There are often semi-organised challenges and virtual events to keep you going until the alien invasion begins next year.
