Summer Black Combe race Tues 2nd July

The summer race is this Tuesday from Wicham, up the Combe and round about. There is a Facebook event for this Matt has created as well.

We’re trying to get a menu from the Miner’s Arms and will post it here when we get it. As Matt says runners and helpers (club members) are welcome for a meal after the race, booked for 8:30pm. You must place your order at the start line before you run, we’ll have a menu there too. The start line is at the fell gate.

Parmi and others will be there for a 6pm and a 6:30pm start, go early if you think you may be some time.

Does anyone (Will) have a map of the route they can post here?
