Are many people around the country going on group runs? I appreciate that there are different rules in other places but I’m interested to know how widespread group activities are these days? I know Clubs are not running many official events at the moment possibly due to ensuring compliance and managing numbers within the rules.

In the east Of England we have grown steadily over the last weeks with the great escape club. It started with just JohnV6 and I and then joined by Mad max slowly growing to the 6 which is the max allowed. This was done by contacts on Talk Morgan with either us inviting people or people asking to join. John set up a group private message that we now use to plan our weekly run out and manage numbers.

If your not going on runs why not give it a try in your area? We all really enjoy a social meeting and a run out.

I'm on a run this weekend organised by the Goodwood Road Racing Club. 101 miles around Hants and West Sussex.

Excellent Ian. Good to hear of more happening. Is it a regular run?

They run 3 or 4 a year in various parts of the country. This one was postponed from April.

Thanks. I just looked on the good wood road racing club site and can’t see the runs. Any chance you could send a link please?

We have just had the 5 mile limit removed here in Wales. Picnic runs seem a good start but avoiding the obvious tourist hot spots. Luckily there are many options in Wales if you know where to go.....

Another mini group picnic run next Wednesday over here in Glos, / W. Mids. smile
We've had a few over the last month or so.
Enjoyed yesterday's trip, but after 9 hours over two sessions in the MINI I felt rather stiff earlier!

We have been on a number of pic-nic runs which have been a great help in lifting spirits. We have managed to find some quiet places where we can sit around at a safe distance and put the world to rights.


Here for a good time not a long time!!

Just had a small, socially distanced gathering of tour guides at the southern end (nearly) of the Malvern Hills. smile
