Re: Club Runs - 21st April

I'll lead a C run to the Pump House in Worcester (another new cafe I think) but there's a catch. You'll need to find your way to Tardebigge and I'll lead it from there. Usual start time 9.15 from BH, approx 9.45 at Tardebigge. About 90km (56 miles) round trip.

Copy the FIT or GPX file off your device onto your computer and it's saved. Back up all your stuff, and it's saved again. Strava, RWGPS etc. are primarily for viewing, sharing and analysis.

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.
