Sunday Morning Runs:

Sunday run fun
Sunday run fun!

Regular Sunday runs! If you're not racing, are a new member, or just want some company on a Sunday morning easy paced run, then this could be for you ! These runs will start from Congleton Leisure centre or for variety within 25-45 mins drive.

 

Start time unless otherwise indicated 9.30 am Distance 6-10 miles (max 10). The idea is to have a number of run leaders who will lead a run each week on a route of their own choice, road, off road, multi terrain (or even ad hoc on the day). This way no one is committed to turning up every week (we're all busy).

Post run there may be the opportunity for tea/coffee depending on the location.

Non club members are welcome on these runs!


For this to succeed we need more run leaders ...the routes can be anything you want it to be urban, country, club summer/winter routes, anything. It's about getting together on a Sunday having a natter and enjoying it. We need more run leaders so if you’re prepared to lead a run please get in touch with us.

Details for each week's run will be on the Harriers Facebook page.
