With Christmas just around the corner this can only mean one thing, running and drinking, preferably in that order so below are a few dates you might want to pop in your diary so you don’t miss out!
Wednesday 11th December is the club Christmas party incorporating the marathon ballot for those who are hoping to be picked out of the hat. I shall post updated details about the ballot soon but even if you are not planning on entering the ballot it will be great to see as many as possible at the club bar for a beer or three. The usual long run on this evening will be swapped with a hill session so we can all be in the bar by 8:30 sharp.
Sunday 22nd December is the annual mob match with the Stragglers and we will be hosting this years event. For those who have never taken part in the Mob Match this is not just about running fast but as the name suggests it is about getting as many people round the course and over the finish as possible. The team with most participants wins so this is an event everyone can take part in even if they are not a member of the club. Bring your family, neighbours, the dog, a stranger off the street, the more the merrier. The course is just under 4 miles and you don’t have to run, so even if you’re carrying an injury and can walk then you can take part.
Each person is asked to bring along a raffle prize so in theory everyone can win something and if your lucky you might just go home with the prize you brought along. The mob match is always good fun and offers the chance to socialise with our arch rivals from Kingston who actually ain’t a bad bunch.
