On the first Tuesday after Hallowe'en there will be a spine-chilling Spooky Run in the dark of Hampstead Heath. Bring a head torch or if you have none, borrow one from the club (we have about 20).
We will run approximately 6 terrifying miles at the speed of the slowest runner, as in previous years we have found whoever is at the back gets picked off first. If you can run 6 miles you can join us as long as you are not afraid of the dark or of falling down a rabbit hole.
There will be a pub night after the run, at Tapping the Admiral as normal, although the pies might be a tiny bit more Sweeney Todd than usual.
Meet at Talacre, Tuesday 6th November, for a 19:15 start. Fancy dress is strongly encouraged.
The next Met League race will take place on Saturday the 10th of November in Welwyn Garden City- easily accessible by train from Finsbury Park or Kings Cross. It’s a lovely course and all abilities are welcome. Guest runners can run any Met League races for £4, sign up on the day. Club runners can also sign up on the day.
Keep an eye on the calendar for other XC races which have a sign up deadline such as the London Cross Country Champs in Parliament Hill on the 17th of November (those of us running St Neot’s the next day can go and watch. There’s something really enjoyable about watching a race which starts up Parliament Hill from the comfort of the sidelines).
We currently have pacers for 40/45/55/60 minutes. If anybody is interested in pacing 50 minutes or any other times please reply to this email.
It would also be great to have some photographs of the runners- if anybody is able to combine marshalling duties with this, it would be appreciated.
It’s a bit early to mention Christmas but you might want to put the Chaser’s Christmas party into your diary now and get your ticket. It’ll feature the usual free food and drink(s) and the annual ‘Mornington Chasers Newsletter Quiz’. See more information here.
