Training Cancelled, Mince Pie Night Postponed
Due to the icy conditions, there will be no training on Tuesday 12th December.
Also the Mince Pie night will be postponed by a week. It will now be held on Tuesday 19th December.
Tuesday Training & Mince Pie Night
Tuesday nights session was intended to be Long Reps at Sunnyside. I will inspect that location tomorrow evening.
It may be that I change the session to a Hill Session at Castle Street, as normally that is clear. I will also inspect that location tomorrow evening.
However, given the snow we have had today and the forecast for temperatures of -8 degrees over next couple of days / nights, it is likely that most locations for speed sessions will be unsafe for us.
As it stands, Mince Pie night, to be held by Elizabeth Aspden-Mansfield is still on. If anything changes I will advise ASAP.
Bradgate Park Boxing Day Run
Posted by Penny on Facebook group:
It is a long standing HRC tradition that we meet at Bradgate Park for an ‘off-road’ run on Boxing Day and this year we are planning to do the same.
We will meet at the main Newtown Linford car park at 9.45, with groups departing on the routes at 10am.
The routes range from 60 mins to 90 mins in length. We usually spilt into three groups; all groups will start off by running up towards ‘Old John’ (Hunts Hill car park) with some then taking in Broombriggs and / or Beacon and/ or Windmill Hill before heading back to Bradgate via Hallgates car park.
It is customary to bring a flask and some mince pies / biscuits to share after the run but we are always finished by 12 noon so people can get home for lunch.
Christmas Pub Run ??
From the social events department – this will be on Friday 22nd December:
Time for our Christmas get-together! This night is all about dressing up, having fun, drinking and a bit of running in between. The plan is to meet up outside The Railway pub at 6.45 to start the run at 7pm. We are working on a Christmas-themed route so will confirm nearer the time. This will be similar to the Halloween run so around a 4 mile run with max 1 mile between each pub (so probably a little more drinking than running)
Our themed pub runs are a great fun social night outs so it would be great to see as many of you dressed in your festive outfits joining us.
Note – Fancy dress isn’t compulsory but its more fun if you do ? Please also note this isn’t a official club event so you are in charge of your own safety so please stay in groups, stay safe and if you find yourself being chased by naughty elves RUN!!
Mince Pie Night ?
EDIT: NOTE NEW DATE. POSTPONED TO 19th DECEMBER
Our “Mince Pie Night” will be on Tuesday 19th December after normal training. This is an annual tradition of an informal festive gathering, and this year is being kindly hosted by Liz Aspden-Mansfield. Contributions of food and drink are welcome and can be dropped round at Liz’s beforehand.
Halloween Run ?
Friday’s Halloween pub run was a big success with more than 40 from both the club and the All Sorts coming out to frighten the town across 4 miles and 5 pubs in some fantastic costumes. Here are a few of the photos from the night.
Halloween Pub Run
We will be having a Halloween pub run on Friday 27th October. This night is all about dressing up, having fun, drinking and a bit of running in between. The plan is to meet up at the car park behind the White bear pub at 6.45 to start the run at 7pm From there we go on to the Railway, The Woolly, The Plough, The Queens Head and then on to The White Bear to finish This is only a 4 mile run with max 1 mile between each pub (so probably a little more drinking than running)
Below are some approx times of when we should be at each pub, hopefully giving us all enough time to run between each pub and plenty of time to order and down a much needed refreshment at each establishment. If you can’t make it for the full night than anyone is welcome to meet us along the route
1st – The Railway pub – Arrive 7.15pm – Depart 7.45pm
2nd – The Woolly – Arrive 8.00pm – Depart 8.30pm
3rd – The Plough -Arrive 8.45pm – Depart 9.15pm
4th – The Queens Head – Arrive 9.30pm – Depart 10.00pm
5th – The White Bear – Arrive 10.15pm – Till Late
We have done this in the past and its been a great fun social night out so it would be great to see as many of you dressed in your scariest out fits joining us.
Note – Fancy dress isn’t compulsory but its more fun if you do:) Please also note this isn’t a official club training night so you are in charge of your own safely so please stay in groups, stay safe and if you find yourself being chased by zombies RUN!!
