Eight merry runners enjoyed the new “Around the Castle Run”. I can see this becoming a firm favourite, as it has variety and is relatively flat. No drinks after as we all needed to get back to family and Christmas preparations. Perhaps there will be more takers next week in the warm-up for Hogmany?
A run with a difference! Tonight we ran from Scott Skinners Bar and finished up enjoying drinks by their cosy fireside. Some folk ran the usual route through town and others used a 7.5km option along the Deeside Way, up to Crathes Castle and back through the woods. The going was easy with a basic head-torch and it was quite refreshing to get out of town. Special thanks to Lesley who pioneered the concept and I’m quite sure we’ll be doing it on a regular basis. In fact on Tuesday 23 it’s the same meeting place and route option.
John, Jack, Bill, Gordon and Mark enjoyed a gentle circuit around Banchory. Pleasant evening run – no rain and more or less above freezing, but still many icy patches underfoot.
Welcome to Michele who ran with us for the first time. He was joined by Sandy, Bill, Wendy, Nicola, Lesley, Steven, Gordon and Jack. Next week we will meet at Scot Skinner’s Bar and do a head-torch run up to Crathes and the Deeside Way. The usual town routes are available to the faint-hearted, but we’ll all meet up back at the pub for a pint afterwards.
Definitely colder than of late. Even a bit slippy underfoot. Young Leslie, Wendy, Helen, Shirley, Lesley, Paul, Bill and Jack had a good invigorating run.
