Thursday morning run

Virginia Pawlyn has kindly offered to lead you on one of her mystery tours of Cheltenham. Start at the Norwood at 9:30am, finish at the Exmouth approx an hour and five miles later.

9th May - 9;30am start at the Norwood, an easy-paced five mile route, possibly taking in the cygnets on Pittville lake but certainly ending at the Exmouth for hot drinks

Meet at the Norwood at 9:30am, finishing five miles later at the Exmouth for 2 for 1 hot drinks and a good chat.

The usual starting point is The Norwood at the junction of Shurdington Rd and Bath Rd, setting off at 9:30am. The route varies but is always five miles. In the summer it may take in some off-road paths. The run operates on a similar basis to the Wednesday evening fartlek group, ie, we generally run together at a conversational pace but any faster runners are asked to loop back at specified re-group points to meet the back markers, so all the group stays in touch with each other. From time to time we may start and finish somewhere else but that will always be notified here and on our Facebook page.

After the run we normally pop into the Exmouth pub where we enjoy 2 for 1 deals on hot drinks and a good chat! There is often a walking group for members coming back from injury - check on FB. Dogs are welcome both on the run and in the pub.
