WLWSC Monthly Run
We started out as Great Run Local running on a Sunday morning but with the demise of the GRL organization during the Pandemic, as a club, we made the decision to proceed with a Monthly Run. The run takes place on quiet Country Lanes and has three distances 3, 4, or 5 Miles. The route is fully signed and marshaled at each junction with 2 cyclists ensuring everyone completes the course safely.
The run takes place on a Friday evening from April to October leaving the club car park at 7 pm on your return the bar is open and a BBQ is available which allows for a social chat and a drink or 2! From October we run Sunday mornings at 9.30 am when we serve tea, coffee, and cakes.
This is a social run and not a RACE as this run takes place on the highway we are required to comply with the Highway Code. All participants RUN AT THEIR OWN RISK and are required to sign a disclaimer before the start. This is a free event but we do encourage participants to purchase a drink or something from the BBQ all monies go towards the running of the Sports Club.
Everyone is welcome whether you are a seasoned runner or just starting out on a running journey. Four-legged friends are welcome but must be kept on a short lead. Headphones are strictly not permitted. Dates vary each month so please check the website regularly as all runs will be posted in advance.
