Merry Christmas and a happy new year from Bridport Runners!

Bridport Runners are wishing all Club members, their families, friends and every runner out there a peaceful Christmas and a happy new year! Despite the festive days, there will be some running going on with a run (9 to 10 miles) on Boxing Day, meeting 11.00 am at The Clockhouse Inn in Chideock. “Terrain is off-road and hills if dry, road if very wet”, says Kazy who’s organising that run. There will be NO official led session on Boxing Day in the evening “but if people want to turn up as usual, they can organize a social run between themselves”, says coach Brian. Sunday run is on at 30th of December, 9:00 am from West Bay, and the next regular training will take place on Wednesday, 2nd January 2019, 6.00 pm.

If you feel restless, bored or under-challenged during the supposedly more quiet days, you might want to look into planning your race diary for 2019 … A good start might be by reading some of Bridport Runners’ stories during the year on our website and on Facebook, looking at Clive’s photo impressions of the 2018 Jurassic Coast Run (for your diary: the 2019 race is licensed and will be held on 11th of August 2019) or Adam’s final “Club Championship 2019: The official race list.” And if you are keen on doing your first race very early next year: The South West Cross Country Championships are being held at Aldon Hill, Yeovil, on 6th January 2019.
