Tuesday Night Runs

Sally Rooke and Jayne Creswell have one more task to do before they can complete their Leader in Running Fitness qualification and they need your help!  They need to video a 5 minute warm-up session and a 5 min training session.  They are going to do this on Tuesday night.  Could Easy Runners be at the Swimming Pool car park at 6:20pm to help Sally out with her session.  Could Gentle Joggers and Jeffers be at the Primary School Car park for 6:20pm to help Jayne out with hers.  Thanks for your support with this.  The more Leaders in Running Fitness we have, the better for the club.
