Newsletter February 21st 2021

Hi there

Warmer but wetter can sum up the last week.  Hope you managed to get out at some point despite the weather.

Hopefully tomorrow we will hear what the Government is going to say about getting back to outdoor exercise with more than one other person.  Fingers crossed that it will be soon.

To give you something to focus on for next week, a Final February Fling!  Another 30 minute challenge.  There were 22 people taking part in the last one.  Can we get it to 30 this time?

Same rules apply – sign up by Thursday evening, either by emailing me  at or by posting on the relevant Facebook post. I will allocate you to one of the teams  (maybe we could get 3 teams of 10 this time?)  Then on either Saturday or Sunday, run for 30 mins and log your distance.  Post on FB or send me the distance covered. Evidence would be good!  The winning team will be the one that covers the most distance.  Last time, the difference bewteen the two teams was within a mile.  Can we get it even closer this time?
