Greetings Harriers, Daddy dancers and C list politicians
From an era when cultural appropriation was nothing more than the UK “acquiring” Kylie Minogue from those poor sad Australians, we have this week an act that could have very well started in our village area ……
There might be plenty of rain about but we will be keeping our heads above water, unlike some ….
This week’s run is a repeat of one that Allan Cheek set for us back in 2011. Cheeky needs no introduction to club members. He has done much for the club. Prior to becoming Hub Meister, included Social Secretary and Race Director before we had to move him upstairs (don’t tell him) to the job of President for a few years. He even has a very decent marathon time under his belt as well as several club road and XC M50 titles.
So, with Cheeky as this week’s Routemaster , fasten your seat belts and here we go ……as we will be exploring the wild west region of Tunbridge Wells (Rusthall) as well as the village area, before a “scenic” return to the club rooms.
The full route is 6.9 miles with a variety of shorter routes between 4.4 and 6.5 miles – something for everyone.
WARNING – beware a seemingly harmless mature gent offering to take you for a drink at every hostellery on route.
It might be a scam as it isn’t @realAllanCheek.
There are unconfirmed reports that our man Colin Ricketts might be at the bar later telling stories of his time in the navy with complimentary tots of rum. Splice the mainbrace!
This week’s route is mostly well lit but please try and stay in groups as much as possible, looking out, especially for guests, and newer members and wear something bright with a head torch a recommended accessory.
The current forecast for Wednesday is for a slightly damp 10C.
Hockey Chris has been promoted “upstairs” (presumably to spend more time with his family) and has handed over the day-to-day reins to Tea Total Trevor, hopefully still selling the finest beer (Harveys), wine and soft drinks in the immediate vicinity, at special prices.
7:30 prompt start from the Nevill – change rooms, showers and bar all open – it’s time to commit!
