Correction to the Ring!!!

New start and end…

The end is High….



Hi all

On the weekend of May 5 and 6 David, Jamie, Steve and James are running the length of the Capital Ring – a 77 mile walking route that goes the whole way around London.
Ordinarily, you might think we were doing this as a challenge – but it’s actually a training weekend for our 100 mile 24 hour run in the Cotswolds in the summer.
Given we’ll be spending about six-seven hours running together on both the Saturday and Sunday, we’ll be bored sh*tless of each other, unless you come and relieve said boredom with some cheeky banter and words of encouragement …
We’d love it if you could come and join us to run one (or more) of the legs – there are 14 (we are splitting one so we stop for drinks in Balham at the end of day 1) in all and they range from 3.5 miles to 7.5, so you can pick up and meet us at the start of any of the sections and peel off when you want.
The schedule looks something like this – let us know if you’d like to join and if so, when and where
