Sale Harriers Autumn Training Weekend September 11-13 2015
As promised, Sale Harriers’ next training weekend will be in the village of Grasmere, in the heart of the Lake District. Famous for its Gingerbread men, and the Handmade Chocolate Shop, the village will host a hearty number of runners prepared to run up the local fells.
We’ll be staying in the village’s YHA which we have capacity for 70 people. http://www.yha.org.uk/hostel/
The weekend will be following the same procedure as past weekends, with plenty of running/drinking/socialising. If you are new to the club, this is a great way of meeting new people in a very informal setting. The weekend format is to meet in the local pub on the Friday, there is a pre Saturday breakfast run followed by a second run before lunch. The afternoon is spent exploring the surroundings with dinner in the hostel in the evening. Sunday is a group long run with departure after lunch. All runs are optional. The village is also very family friendly, with plenty of activities to do.
The cost of the weekend is £80 (£60 for children). This includes accommodation Friday and Saturday with full board from Saturday breakfast through to Sunday lunch. The cost also includes tea and coffee. As an additional option, the hostel will provide a three course dinner on the Friday (served at 7.30pm) for a respectable price of £10 (£8 child). There will be the option of eating in the local pub too if you prefer that.
Great Langdale Half Marathon
During the weekend, there is a local race which may be of interest to some people. The Langdale Half Marathon, a hilly challenge which begins at the New Dungeon Ghyll Hotel. Race price is £17. Entries can be gained online: http://greatlangdaleroadraces.
