A regular Chasers favourite: a fast course on roads with a few undulations.

Eamon Byrne organized a training run.

08:57am train to Wendover. Direct train 48 min journey. Day return is £19.90. From Wendover station we will run 1 mile to Wendover Woods. Option for one or two 10 mile laps of the trails before returning to Wendover for some beer and food. Suggest trail shoes if you have them and min 1l fluid although there is a cafe in the woods where you can get supplies. Poles will be useful but not essential. Likely to be a slow paced run as there are some steep hills but they are short and there is good runable trail for the faster runners. There is a GPX route on the Centurion running website under Wendover Woods 50.

London Marathon Elite drinks volunteering

Date: Sun 3 October 2021
Time: 07:00

Every year, the Mornington Chasers organise one of the elite drinks tables at the London Marathon, in exchange for places in the race.  We need Chasers to volunteer to help out between 7am and around 11am/12pm on the day.  We'll be based just before Tower Bridge.  It's an early start but lots of fun and a unique perspective on this amazing event.  

I have given priority to Chasers who signed up for this last year and missed out, and we now have 8 places left over to allocate to any current member (paid or lifetime).  (If you signed up last year and have told me you would like to volunteer this year then please don't sign up here as well - you are already on the list.)

Volunteers will need to register online (with a passport-style photo).  Once your place is confirmed, I'll send you a link to do this.  

***Please contact Lizzy if you have signed up but can no longer volunteer!***
