TWH run – Wednesday 14th February 2024 – Swiftly

Club Events
Greetings Harriers
 (Good afternoon to those Harriers that stayed up late to catch a glimpse of Taylor Swift at the Super Bowl)
It’s that time of the year, when we might need to choose between one or the other, or perhaps not ?
 Or perhaps you are ready for serious action
This week’s run is a repeat of one that long serving committee member Peter Richardson set for us a while back. All of your favourite roads are in there, although you might not be running them in your favourite direction !
So, with Peter as this week’s Routemaster , fasten your seat belts and let’s go ……in a High Brooms direction.
 Whether you are returning from skiing, recovering from Saturday’s XC, preparing for Sunday’s HM, marathon training run or just want to run with your friends, there is something for you.
The long route is 7.8 miles and the short route 5.6 miles and plenty in between – something for everyone.
 This week’s route is mostly well lit but please try and stay in groups as much as possible, looking out especially for guests, newer members and wear something bright with a head torch an optional accessory.
Current forecast for Wednesday is for a damp but mild 11C.
Map and GPX attached.
There is also a walking group that sets off at the same time. So if you’re injured, tired or just like to dress up, come along and walk with friends.
The Nevill is closed for repair for several months, so we will continue to utilise the fine facilities of the Nevill Tennis Club next door to us for baggage and post run showers followed by our post-run refreshment. Turnout has been great and we want to keep that going.
 So after the run head back to the tennis club – the perfect temporary home for the top seeds of Kent running.
The ideal place to knock back a few lime and sodas.
 As a bonus, after the run in the tennis club, we will have the inaugural TWH ‘kit swap’ evening.
How might you feel if you pick up the bargain of a lifetime ?
7:30 prompt start from the Tennis Club Bar – Tennis Club change rooms and showers are open, then its afters upstairs at the Tennis Club Bar – it’s time to commit !
 If anyone has an idea for a route please get in contact – all contributions welcome.
