Blackhill Bounders Anniversary Run – Sunday 17th February 2019

Once again we’re running a lap of the Derwent reservoir to celebrate our anniversary. It’s a fantastic run and we’d like as many as possible to join in.

A full lap is 9 miles, but we’re adding some joining points if you don’t fancy the full lap!

We start and finish at Pow Hill- and we’ve reserved the back room in the Boat Shack, to take on much needed refreshments afterwards (there is a bar!)

We don’t have sole use of the cafe due to it being open to the general public. Due to this we won’t be able to provide a buffet this year! The owners suggested hot yorkshire pudding wraps, these are available in beef, chicken and vegetarian options for fillings. The club have agreed to part-fund them but would like a £3 donation per person per meal.

10.00am Start at Pow Hill –  The pace will be very sociable so should cater for all abilities- nobody will be left behind.

If anyone wants to go a bit quicker they can set off a little later.

Alternatively you can meet at 10.30am (approx), Carricks picnic site (closed now but you can still find it) 6.5 miles from here.

11.00am (or when the tail runner gets there- but not sooner) – Mill Shields picnic site- it’s just over 3 miles to Pow Hill. This is where our Juniors will join us.

The aim is for us to try and finish together. It won’t be easy to all run together but we can all try to finish together.

Once finished it’s into the Boat Shack.

For those who are really keen, some are doing some extra miles. Aidan Hughes and a few others are planning on starting at 8.30 to do 2 laps and I know others are planning similar- I’m sure they will share details of these start times.

Hope to see as many people there as possible, we are so luck to have this beautiful route on our doorstep. It’s a sociable day – and we’re good at that!

For those new to the Bounders it is also a great opportunity to get to know other members of the Club.
