The LFTC trail running weekend is back, this time in the Chiltern Hills! If long trail runs, pub lunches and good company are your things, this is the weekend for you!
We are organising a club weekend of trail running in the Chiltern Hills from Friday 21st February to Sunday 23rd February 2020, basing ourselves at the Wendover Arms Hotel in High Wycombe. This is a very social and running-heavy trip, offering several routes of different distances through the stunning Bucks countryside to accommodate for all levels and preferences.
The plan is to head out to High Wycombe by train or car after work on Friday 21st February. We will meet there for dinner (exact place TBC) where we can decide on the final routes and distances we will do the next day. Route options will be added to the spreadsheet soon. There will be options for short, medium and long runs. High Wycombe also has a Park Run for the Park Run lovers among you, and some of the routes will incorporate that as part of the long run too.
Saturday will start with a chilled coffee/tea/breakfast at the hotel followed by some running and ending at a pub where we will tuck in for the afternoon. The evening will give you another chance to replenish those calories lost earlier in the day and socialise with your fellow runners over a meal and some drinks.
If you’re new to the club it’s a great way to get to know some of your fellow club members while getting some winter running miles under your belt.
LFTC currently has 20 spaces (9 twin rooms and 1 double room) provisionally booked at the hotel. Be aware that this trip always gets sold out. If you would like to book please fill out the attached spreadsheet and pay an initial deposit of £25 by 1st January 2020. Your remaining payments should then be made by the 1st February 2020.
