Calling all runners – and aspiring runners – in Scraptoft/Thurnby/Bushby and surrounding areas

Meet every Monday 6.30pm the White House Scraptoft

Calling all runners – and aspiring runners – in Scraptoft/Thurnby/Bushby and surrounding areas

We meet every Monday evening at the White House, Scraptoft, at 6.30 pm – rain or shine!

Our weekly runs are usually around 3 miles. The quicker runners do a bit more, the slower ones a bit less. We split up according to ability but always start off together and aim to finish together. And if you're a complete beginner we certainly wouldn't expect you to do 3 miles as soon as you start. We have a variety of routes – mainly on footpaths along the local streets, but with the possibility of some field runs – when the weather is good.

There's no fee to join. You don't have to sign up for a set number of weeks.

For more information contact, Run Leader, Clinton 'Baz' Barratt (mobile: 0773 807 1686) or visit our website (www.scraptoftjoggers.co.uk)
