Mike Gill’s 30 Miles for 30 Years – 5 Reservoir Run

On Sunday 5th March, Mike will be running 30 miles round all 5 of our local reservoirs, in celebration of the Club’s 30th Anniversary. Starting at 07.00 from the Terris Novalis (the sculptures at the top of the track by Morrison’s).

Mike invites you all to join him for all, or any part of the run – you will find his itinerary and a map of the route below.

“To keep the spirit of running 1 mile for each year since Blackhill Bounders were formed I will be running 30 miles around the traditional 5 reservoir route. I would welcome anyone to join me for all or part of the run. The pace will be easy and probably average 12 to 13 minute miles by the time you take into account runners joining/leaving and of course photo stops!! Possible joining points below.

Timings are a guess and will probably be quicker at the start and maybe the other way near the end, from past experience this type of run usually averages 12/13 minute miles taking into account time for runners joining and leaving etc.

There will be beer afterwards at the Grey Horse”
