Message from Pete Clark

10/10/2012 21:58:27

1. INTERVAL SESSION next Tuesday, 16th October: Pete Clark will be meeting runners at 7:10 PM at THE PIER for a warm-up session, NOT at the Tropicana. Runners can still meet at Hutton Moor at 7 PM if they prefer.

Please can all runners meet by THE PIER for around 7.25 PM for the main session. Thanks.

2. NIGHT RUN Thursday 1st November, 7 PM, BARTON CAMP, (followed by refreshments - details to follow).

The MENDIP MASSIVE invite you to join us for our first night run of the season. We will be meeting at 6.45 PM for a prompt 7 PM start. The route will be approximately 6 miles, mostly off road, so you will require suitable footwear. ALL RUNNERS MUST WEAR OR CARRY FULL BODY COVER, Hi-Viz vest or similar, and bring a good head torch (night runs are fun and adventurous, but runners must be aware that running off road in the dark is potentially dangerous and they participate at their own risk).

If you have any questions please speak to Neale or Pete. Address is Barton Camp, Winscombe, North Somerset, BS25 1DY.

SEE YOU THERE!
