Off Road - summer fell run

Show of hands...
Come spring/summer's lighter nights, how many of you would be interested in a, once a month, fell run :mountain: :runner: alternative to club session?
Don't be scared, I won't take you scrambling gullies, that's my weekend's treat :wink: :+1:
It would be structured exactly like a club night, but on the fells :mountain: :the_horns:

Re: Off Road - summer fell run

Right-o, response over our other social media was overwhelming towards a yes, so I've decided to put it up every 2nd Thursday of the month, starting from April.

  • 1st Date and time: Thu 11.04.2019 @6:15pm

  • Location: Bwlch Pen Barras, Mold CH7 5SH Directions

  • Format: depending on attendance, there will be groups, exactly like at club nights. If attendance is low, we will re-group, again as per standard club's practice. Route will follow well know and marked paths, such as the Offa's Dyke. Run will last 80mins ish

  • Logistics: personally, I can offer to meet at McDonald's, Moor Ln, Widnes WA8 7AP @5pm for car sharing and avoiding multiple bridge's charges, but I understand everyone will have their own working/life arrangement, therefore I will leave this bit to sort out between yourselves

Any questions, fire away.

Re: Off Road - summer fell run

Our first summer alternative off road training session is getting closer :mountain: :muscle:
If you haven't already, get yourself a pair of trail shoes (I'll be gentle the first time, you'll buy crampons next :smile: :wink: ) and a waterproof cagoule..
I don't anticipate any other gear required...
Fire up any questions here, if you have any, so I can clarify in time and you don't arrive unprepared :+1:

Re: Off Road - summer fell run

Right oh folks,
Weather for Thu is fine, I'd say only gear needed is a windproof jacket, just in case⛰👍
