Christmas Eve Run - Lyme Park

 From Jon Falkner... 'A Christmas Eve run round Lyme Park (similar to previous years) is planned from the public car park (which is, we believe, pay and display - or will be soon) opposite the Boars Head pub in Higher Poynton (corner of Anson Rd and Shrigley Rd).

Starting at 9am on Saturday, there's a couple of route options depending on ability and how long people want to be out. The shorter route is around 7 miles and the longer one just over 8 miles. Could be a bit muddy, so take your trail shoes.

Everyone welcome !! and please bring bring hot drinks and mince pies for afterwards!' Cheers Jon

Jedburgh Half Marathon report from Andy and Dawn Devine

Back in the summer of 2016, Dawn and I had the rosy-eyed plan to complete three half marathons within October – a challenge which we’d never come close to previously!  With Congleton and Manchester HMs in the bag, we headed off to Jedburgh in Scotland for the third (and hardest).
