Festive runs with MBH

Dear all,

I appreciate this won’t be for everyone due to timings / day of week / distance to travel or other committments but………

We extend our invite as usual to everyone

MONDAY 21 DECEMBER – once again Mounts Bay Harriers will be having their Christmas Lights Run. This years trot and I mean trot, not a race! (roughly 6 miles) along Penzance Promenade, through Newlyn and onto Mousehole to view the Christmas lights will be held on MONDAY 22 DECEMBER, leaving the Yacht Inn Car Park, Penzance (opposite Jubilee Pool) at 7PM, all friends, family and runners of local clubs are invited to join us – please wear something glittery, flashy, high vis, fancy dressy, Christmassy etc and hide some loose change in your shorts to throw into the charity buckets when we get to Mousehole – as usual we will be popping into the Yacht Inn for our Christmas Raffle, mince pies, chips and coffees (or something stronger) on our return.

Other MBH Festive Social Runs you may want to join us on?

Not really MBH – but Saturday 26 December, 9am as with EVERY week – Penrose Parkrun, Helston – Fancy dress a must! (try out those new off roaders or Parkrun barcode band you’ve asked for that you’re getting for crimbo?!?)

SUNDAY 27 DECEMBER – meeting at 10.30am at the St Levan playing fields (start of the St Levan 10K) MBH invite you to run with them the St Levan Coastal Run – all runners invited to run this challenging but picturesque coastal path from Poljigga to Porthcurno (approx 6 miles) taking in the Minack Theatre steps! usually a run to blow away those Christmas cobwebs! so dress appropriately


FRIDAY 1 JANUARY 2016 – meeting at 11 am – an alternative to Brown Willy – New Year’s Day Geoff we will, once again, be leading a roughly 5 mile social run, half on- half off-road, over Carn Galva and back to The Gurnards Head Hotel – mud, gorse, puddles, wind, ice, snow! and even a bit of local history thrown in – we’ve had it all in the past (long run tights advised) – meet at The Gurnards Head Hotel car park, Zennor, TR26 3DE (NOTE NEW MEETING POINT) at 11am (hangover permitting!) and then ‘Hair of the Dog!’ or most probably soup and a coffee at the pub! They have kindly reserved 20 seats for us, so if the soup option (£5 a head) is for you please contact the Gurnards Hotel direct on 01736 796928

Hope to see a few of you over the Festive Period and good luck to all in 2016 (INJURIES PERMITTING! ;-()
