Just in time to re-focus on running after the over-indulgence of Christmas is the Ribble Valley 10k shceduled for Sunday 28th December 2014. The race has caught the eye of a few Harriers with around 15 club members already signed up to run so far. Given popularity of the race amongst the Endurance Wing, we have decided to declare it a Wigan Harriers Big Day Out and target the event for a grand turn out of red and black vests.
The race starts at 10:30am in Clitheroe so its just a short journey up the M65 to blow away those post Christmas cobwebs and get us back in the mood for running! It should make a nice change from slogging around muddy cross country courses to get a few miles covered on nice clean and flat tarmac! It is also an ideal course for anyone looking to finish the year with one last go at their 10k PB.
There is some talk of re-grouping back in Wigan after the event to squeeze the last drops of festive spirirt out of a hostelry or two but this is far from compulsory! Once we have an idea who has entered we can sort out a convoy of car sharing vehicels to take us all there and back again. We are hpoing as many Endurance runners as possible will take part so that we have the company of fellow Harriers throughout the field.
