CLUB RUNS

Sunday 25th August – Glenderaterra loop – Led by Chris Curtis

Meet 9am at the bottom of Spooney Green Lane on Brundholme Road (NY 268241).

A winding trail run through the woods on the lower slopes of Latrigg, over to the Blencathra centre then along the valley side loop (Skiddaw house direction) and back along the Cumbria way to Keswick.

Approximately 10 miles. Suitable for everyone, so everyone welcome.

Sunday 8th September – Blencathra – Led by Jenny Russell

Meet 9am at the phone box in Mungrisdale (NY 362303).

A variation  of the Blencathra race route that avoids the steep descent at the end.  It’s around 8 miles with 800 metres of ascent.  If the weather’s poor we will do an alternative circuit of the lower fells.  Expect to be out around two hours.  It is suitable for those who have recently started running in the fells or more experienced club runners for a social run to this popular summit.  You must have fell shoes and be prepared to carry waterproofs.

INTERVALS BOX

No further Interval sessions until Spring 2019. Instead an ‘Intervals Box’.

The interval team have placed a ‘Intervals Box’ hidden at Bowscale tarn. The idea is to encourage members to continue their interval reps up to the tarn over the winter period. When you do a interval session up to the tarn, find the box and record your effort in the notebook. The location of the box is under stone behind large boulder just before the tarn, 1 meter to the left of path.
