Training weekend at By The Way update

The next training weekend will take place on the weekend of 22 – 23 May 2015 at By The Way, Tyndrum.  There is still accommodation left in the bunkhouse – to book please call 01838 400333 and mention that you are part of the WHW Race training weekend.  The plan is to leave Tyndrum at 9am on the Saturday morning and head south along the West Highland Way to Inversnaid, then turn round and come back the same way.  The full distance is about 38 (fairly tough) miles, but people are obviously welcome to turn earlier or indeed do some other route if they prefer.  In the evening there will be a 2 course meal available for £10 at By The Way, which should be booked by contacting Kirsty at the number above.  We also hope to have a couple of speakers.  There are no formal plans for the Sunday, but I’m sure a few people will be wanting to use the weekend for their last long back to back runs.  Everyone is welcome to join the run, whether staying or not.  I look forward to seeing as many of you as possible there.
