Christmas Day and New Year Day runs

 
We are delighted to announce that we will again be putting on extra events this year so you can start off the holidays with a run in the park!

Our programme of runs will be as follows:

Saturday 24th December - Normal run at 9am.
Sunday 25th December - Special extra run at 9am. (Santa outfits are welcome with a mince pie or two!)
Saturday 31st December - Normal run at 9am.
Sunday 1st January - Special extra run at 10:30am

The New Years Day run is a the later time to enable you to do the "double" this means you could run at either Maldon Prom, Great Notley who both go at 9am and if you are adventurous you could get to Hatfield Forest for a 8:30 start then back to Chelmsford for our 10:30 start.

As always, please drive responsibly and with care between each event location.

Both our extra events are on Sundays which is normally Chelmsford juniors days but they have cancelled which allows us to put on these events. If you know any of the junior team, please say thank you!

WK 156 (435)
WK #158 (137)

Last year a group ran from Great Notley to Chelmsford to do the double as there were no buses!
