Instructions for those attending:

Remember we based are in the Indoor Area of the NSC. We are going to be based in the Conference Room near to the café. If you go to the café area, I will ensure that you are directed to the Conference Room from there. We are aiming for a 10.30 start so please try to be prompt.

Refreshments will be available during the day from the café. If you would rather, please feel free to bring a packed lunch and/or drinks as well.

As part of the morning will be spent outdoors, I suggest that you bring some spare kit as it is likely that you will be wet or sweaty (!) depending on the weather. The training run will be split into two group depending on age and ability – and these will run for different amounts of time/distance. After lunch all activity will be based indoors.

Thanks are due in advance to Manx Sport and Recreation for help and support in promoting this initiative.

If anyone is intending to turn up but has not yet notified me, can they please do so on 670521 immediately.
