RED KITE SOCIAL RUN – Further Information

UPDATE – Run to Winlaton Mill Red Kit Pub along the Derwent Walk – Friday 29th June, starting at 6-00 pm from QUEENS ROAD (9 miles), picking up 6.10pm from SHOTLEY STATION (8 miles) then 6.30pm at EBCHESTER STATION (7 miles) ( beside Derwent Walk pub).

This is a replacement for the old Pasty run to Gibside which is now not available! Run at your own pace but it will be tail ran by Beginners group.   Mike would appreciate an indication if you intend to go just so I can let pub know approximate numbers. Food is available and there is a comfortable outside area if weather suitable! There’s also a TV in the Pub if you wish to watch the Iceland game!

Arrange your own transport back home but bus number 45 runs every half hour back to Consett!  Thanks Mike Swainson

Friday 29 June 2018 – Red Kite Social Run

29 June 2018 – ‘Come Fly your Kite’ Social Run – Apologies for the name this is the best Mike Swainson could come up with at short notice :)

This run replaces the very popular run down to Gibside that are normally held but due to changes within Gibside NT these are no longer possible, without incurring an entry fee into the grounds.

The plan is to meet at Ebchester Station for a 6.30pm start and continuing down the line to the Red Kite Pub in Winlaton. The run is very social and will be at your own pace, no one will get left behind, and it is also a great way to meet other members.  Food  (and alcohol) is available to purchase at the Red Kite.  You must arrange your own transport back from Winlaton.  For any further information please contact Mike Swainson
