Bury Ditches Recce - Tuesday 13th September

We have been given the opportunity to recce the Bury Ditches Race this coming Tuesday night. Parts of the race route are on private land and are not normally accessible, so this is an ideal opportunity to get an edge and some route knowledge.
We will be meeting at the Powis Arms in Lydbury North and not in Church Stretton as normal, although I dare say some will turn up in Stretton and will run.
So don't forget to come to the Powis Arms on the B4385 for 7pm on Tuesday...

Roger Lamb 03.04.1964 - 21.08.2011

Tom Roo is ancient, PARTY!!!! Special arrangements for Tuesday run on 6th September!

We intend to celebrate our Tom surviving to reach his 30th birthday last week, despite his increasingly mental descending...

So on Tuesday 6th, we're going to mix up the Tuesday night run! By adding the option to run to the Bridges at Ratlinghope (formerly the Horseshoes at Bridges), for a celebratory drink or two :-) Some of the Tuesday regulars will ferry cars over there beforehand, so we should be able to get everyone back to Stretton afterwards. (For anyone who doesn't fancy it there will be an out and back option from Church Stretton if required).
