Still sticking to the traditional route, the start will be on the northern side of the by-pass at Longford and the finish on the south side. All local runners over 14 are welcome. Further details later will be available at

Finally a gentle reminder that the next club meeting is on Tuesday 5th December at 19:00 in the cafe at Sainsburys Barnwood
