Re: Club runs - 29th July

Forgot to say, passing the 100 mile mark (well almost) will be celebrated at the Coach and Horses, Weatheroak.

I expect the pace will be around 12.5-13.5 mph (7.5-8 hours plus stops). B runners welcome if you fancy a longer, slower one for a change.

Apparently there was some demand for a C-paced 100 miler - so we'll have one on Sunday. Early 8.15 start at the Black Horse. I'll keep an eye on the forecast - at the moment light rain is predicted. If that gets worse I might decide to postpone the 100 and do something else instead. Route here:https...
