Lights and Pies Event

Tuesday 18th December was no ordinary night at the Club. 40 or so runners turned up. It was great to see members, family and friends dress up for the night in festive costume to run around the old part of Sawley to admire the few houses that really go to town when it comes to decorating their houses for Christmas.

With a choice of running either 4 miles or 7 miles, father Christmases, Shaun Burton, Ash Patel and Colin Bostock had a reindeer to pull them along (well Duncan Gedge anyway, who wore a hat, bells and flashing lights) and an angel to guide them (Nicola Bennett). Luckily nobody got stranded in the housing estate.

On return from the run and a quick shower and change, everybody made their way to the 'Bulls Head' pub where hosts Phil and Leanne treated everyone to chip cobs followed by mince and apple pies -disappointingly there were no 'mice' pies as promised by Ash. Special thanks to Phil and Leanne for looking after us all. It was a great night.

The prize for best fancy dress costume on the night went to Bill Sheppard who came as Jimmy Saville. Photos will follow shortly.
