This year, we will be running a Christmas Day event, starting at 9:30am. This will obviously depend on getting enough volunteers to run safely, so please do let us know if you can help out.

Currently undecided for New Years day, again, all dependant on having enough people available to put the event on.

Great running everyone, see you next week
