HBAC Christmas Pub Run – Thursday 21 December

CHRISTMAS PUB RUN NEXT THURSDAY, 21st DECEMBER!!! 7pm from the Mill Tavern.
Our annual, fantastic, Christmas pub run is happening next week and we're hoping to see as many of you as possible, tinselled/dressed up and fully festive next Thursday - a great chance to practice running and drinking ahead of the world famous Boxing Day Run.
It is also a chance for our hard working coaches to have a night off and hopefully be bought a drink or two.
It'd be nice to stick together throughout and as such here are some outline venue timings for reference. Don't hang around if you're ready to move to the next place as having a staggered entry will aid the serving efficiency!
- park your car wherever you want and run to the Mill Tavern for 7-7.10pm (if you want to get a bit more of a run in beforehand feel free to arrange this amongst your groups and pals).
- around 7.40pm run to the Apple Tree
- head off from the Apple Tree to the Station House around 8.30pm, before moving into town after one drink to finish at the White Horse until closing (why not, it's Christmas!).
***Please be super careful on the roads and pavements and amongst pedestrians. It is not a coached or HBAC led session and you take part at your own risk....look out for each other and have a great, safe night***
