Club Run on Wednesday 20th September

Our next Club Run (the first of the Autumn/Winter programme) will be on Wednesday 20th September. It will start at the West Wight Sports Centre.
We will head directly to the sea wall and might still catch a bit of the sunset.But do dig out the head torch (and check it still works) and the high viz clothing because you will be needing them before the end.  The route is almost all road-like surface so road shoes will be more suitable. 

This is the 5 mile route
Sea wall from WW Sports Centre. Mapometer.com running route #4615770

and if that seems too much there is a 3 mile version
Sea Wall from WW Sports Centre (shortened). Mapometer.com running route #4615774

Meet in the foyer at 6:45 pm for a prompt 7 pm start.
Please come along and join us - All runners are welcome

Reflective clothing and torches will be needed

Club Run Wednesday 13th September

This Wednesday's run, 13th September, starts from the Stag pub, Stag Lane (about 1.5 miles north of Newport) Grid Ref: 492918
The postcode is: PO30 5TW
Meet at 6:45 pm for a 7 pm start.
All runners are welcome. A note about the run from Paul:-
"Its about 5.2 miles. we can make it longer or shorter as required...
As I prefer road rather than trail, this is a pavement or path route."
meet at the Stag pub, Stag Lane, off the Newport to Cowes road...
there is plenty of parking
on Stag Lane."
Slight change to meeting place:The stag inn has a kitchen problem (no chef!!!) so they are not happy if we park in their car park...
A little further down the lane (approx. 100 yds.’) the yellow lines stop and we will meet there.
I suggest we go to the Bargeman’s after if fellow runners are up for it.

The route for the run: mapometer route

Six WWRRs headed into the New Forest on Sunday and took part in the Half Marathon - Well done!
Puddles and Ponies added extra challenge to the 13.1 miles!

Some snippets (lifted from facebook):-
"... Graham said he was delayed by galloping ponies at one point .... and there had been huge thunderstorms the day before so there were plenty of massive puddles in places..."

Club Run on Wednesday 30th August

Our Club Run this evening starts from the Old Village Car Park, Shanklin.
Meet at the Old Village Car Park - very near to the Crab Inn.
PO37 6NS,  Grid Ref: 582810
Meet at 6:45 pm for a 7pm start.
All runners are very welcome to join us.
The Route:
Starting from the Car Park we will run out along the cliff path and back along the seafront. Lisa has provided this note about the route:
"It looks like the weather may break ... and therefore I have decided it best to run along the seafront. There are streetlights the whole length.
I am planning an out and back along the Shanklin to Sandown seafront. Out along the cliff path and home along the seafront. You can make it as long as you like with many options to take the paths or road down to the seafront.
Fingers cross the weather is ok."
