We would like to invite you to join us as we believe running in groups is safer during the winter. Whether you are training for the London Marathon, The Snake Lane 10 in Pocklington or just want to get off your backsides rather than watching the television come and join us for nights of tea and biscuits or swift halves at the bar.
