The Stubbington Green Runners Social committee is very active in organising fun events and post run socials throughout the year to compliment the training and competitive runs. 2016 was an active year for the club with many events and social gatherings. We will be looking to repeat these events in 2017 but are always open to suggestions and volunteers to help organise new ones too.
Events will be posted on the calendar under the News section of this website as a handy reference. Details of events will appear here and on our Facebook page as they are arranged. Exact details of some of the 2017 events are still to be finalised, but below is a flavour of what’s to come in 2016.
Chariots of Fire beach run
Friday May 26th - Start time 6:30 pm
May 26th will see a return of the Stubbington Green Runners Chariots of Fire Beach Run from Meon foreshore by the beach chalets/loos.
The run is 4 miles long and apart from the first and last 100 yards is on firm sand. The course is to follow the low water line to Solent Breezes and back. The run has been timed to take place at one of the lowest tide times of the year. At its low point you should be able to run nearly 500 yards from the shoreline. You might get your feet wet, so bring a towel!
After the run, weather permitting we will do some sausages in buns (£1.00) and have some soft drinks available, however you are welcome to bring whatever drink you want. If the weather is poor, then we shall retreat to the Osborne View.
As in the film White Tops and shorts would be good and of course plimsoll’s! This is not a race just an excuse for a social on what hopefully will be a lovely summer’s evening. Hope to see you there.
