Run Out Lunch 2017
10 December 2017
[UPDATED December 8th, 2017 at 08:39 am]
Our award-awaiting tradition known only as the Run–Out Lunch has been scheduled for the 10th December and its our 25th Anniversary.
We meet as one of 2 pre-arranged locations for either a long, short or walking route and proceed cross-country to a mystery venue for drinks, lunch and merriment. We’ll even have baggage transportation to the finish line.
The long route will be around 12 cross country miles and the short 7ish. Navigation will be by an ‘unusual’ map and may cause distraction if you think you know the area. I don’t want to give too much away incase I upset the examiner, but there will be a river crossing and even a forest flour trail for both routes.
Children, non-runners and families are most welcome each year to meet at the venue by means of a secret mechanism of disclosure-via-envelope. Or if you want, just come for the run.
Details on the start locations are released in the week leading upto the event and to make things more fun there will be a spot the pub competition on Wednesday nights for a small entry fee. Closest takes the whole pot on the day.
2 courses for £18 (starter+main or main+dessert)
Kids meals for £10
We expect to sit down 12:30 to 1pm for food depending on when everyone arrives!
£10 to secure your place!
Get to your start point and we’ll transport your bags for you. Its best you organise car sharing to the start if you can, or even get a taxi there if you want.
There will be non-runners available to offer transportation back to the starts, otherwise taxi’s can be booked to the starts or back to Tunbridge Wells. Recommend sharing for these!
So the most important part is getting yourself to the start line, everything else you can handle on the day!
There will be a barn for changing, but if that’s too chilly for you, we’ll have exclusive use of the toilets on our side of the pub
