Hi Westwoods runners,
The sizzling Saturday running group are setting their sights on a 10K goal in July. Ali has suggested the excellent Musselburgh 10K on Sat 23rd. So if you've wanted to set a goal for the summer but haven't yet got round to it, why not consider this fine, flat run? Full details at foot of e mail.
How about it... Tuesday and Thursday runners?

On the remaining Saturday mornings running up to July 23rd
we will be running approximate 10K routes in the Westwoods area to help prepare for the distance (starting tomorrow at 9.30am with a 10K affording exceptional views over the city).
Links to two levels of training schedules are below (depending on your time available and experience) - if you start either of these schedules towards end of May you'll have the recommended 8 weeks of the plan completed by the day of the 10K. Any questions, please feel free to get in touch.

Please note - at time of writing the 10K had not opened for entries yet. I'll let you know, or keep an eye out using the link below.

comedy night this thursday to raise funds for waverly care

When: Thursday 28 April 2011

Where: Slainte Mhath Bar

13 - 14 Melville Place



Time: 8pm - late

Tickets: £7 on the door [or in advance from waverly care?]

Jojo Sutherland is comparing the night and Stand headliners and regulars, the Sensational Alex Salmond Gastric Band, Keir McAllister, Jay Lafferty and the Kasengele Brothers are all performing on the night. All the comedians are giving their time for free and the London to Paris cycle is self-financed, so all money raised goes directly to Waverley Care.
