TRC w/c Monday 9th November during Lockdown2

The most recent Government directives for Lockdown2 mean we will not be able to meet on a Tuesday or Thursday for 4 weeks from 5th November as we must all ‘Stay at Home’

‘Stay at Home’ means you must not leave or be outside of your home except for specific purposes. This includes to exercise outdoors with the people you live with, with your support bubble or, when on your own, with 1 person from another household

Full details are here…

1. Lockdown2 Busters.

Captain Kevin is proposing that to keep us running together whilst apart during lockdown there will be two events each week:

• Route of the Week: Each week I will publish a ‘route of the week’ suggested by one of our team of Leaders.
Routes are ready, are you? Now it can be Thursday any day of the week!
This weeks route:
Route: Tockington Woodhouse Lower Hazel Loop
Distance: 4.79 miles
Elevation: 323 ft
Type: Road

• Virtual Tuesday: Many of you enjoy Tuesday efforts. Sessions details will be posted each Tuesday. Pick a time and day that works for you!

Start a conversation: Please post your comments and photos each week so we can all see who is taking part.
