First Run of the Summer Program

Wednesday 19th April
A fine evening run was enjoyed by WWRRs.
Thanks to Megan for taking the traditional "chalk pit line-up" photo:



(At some risk of 17 runners sliding down a slippery slope)

We made it into a National Newspaper!
Or rather, our route made it.
In a “Running Special” article, the Saturday Times, 15th April, listed Britain’s most beautiful routes.
High in the list was a run up Tennyson Down starting from the Chalk Pit car park.
