Summer Training – Tuesday Evening:

 

Throughout the summer months there is a Tuesday evening training run on the surrounding fells of Bowland, Pendle and the West Pennine Moors. This session is uncoached, and the individuals who participate are responsible for their own wellbeing and that of others within the group. It is the responsibility of the individual to decide whether a session is suitable for them or not.

These are group runs suitable for all adults of any ability. All are welcome. Please note that, although there are no coaches or group leaders, we always run in groups of similar ability and no runner is left to run alone.

 

The weather can be inclement even in summer, so it is advisable to bring along a waterproof top and trousers, hat, gloves, whistle and compass. Fell or trail shoes should be worn. Road shoes are unsuitable.

Start Time: 6.30pm (unless stated otherwise)
