What's coming up?

At the snails we love to get together for loads of different events. So many that my personal calendar and the snails calendar is now pretty much one and the same. But maybe that says something about me. 

Here are some events we have coming up: 

August 1 - Joint run.

Our lovely friends from the Halifax Harriers are coming to pay us a visit.

August 4 - Our running pub crawl.

This is the third pub crawl we've done and is guaranteed to be great fun and brilliant for all abilities.

We are back for the highlight of your summer, it’s round 3 of the Snails running pub crawl! We run, we get rewarded with beer (or a soft beverage)

The run is for all abilities and we usually have a good mix of turbos and steadies. The route is below with the pubs we will stop at listed. This is a new route this time so don’t miss out! 

As always you can join at any part of the route, if you want to miss out most of the hills i’d suggest joining at The New Inn at Mount Tabour. 

12 noon start at the club
1: The Winterburn, Warley arrive by 12:20 and leave by 12:50
2: The New Inn, Mount Tabour arrive by 1:15 and leave by 1:45
3: The Crossroads, Wainstalls arrive by 1:50 and leave by 2:20

August 18 - Selfie Score.

This needs a little more explaining so here we are:

Start: Anytime between 10:30 and 11:00 from the Cricket Club.

Time Limit: 90 mins

Aim: To visit as many places marked on the map (handed out at start), take a selfie with the object/building/person and get back to the finish in the allotted time. Points will be deducted for each minute you are late. Each location is worth a different amount of points depending on how hard it is to find and how far away it is. You will not need a compass however a knowledge of Sowerby Bridge and the local area will be beneficial.

To level the playing field and ensure than anyone can win, the below multipliers will be in force. If you are in a pair or team the multiplier goes on your best runner.

Champs Group 1 – Points x 1
Champs Group 2 – Points x 1.25
Champs Group 3 – Points x 1.5
Champs Group 4 – Points x 1.75
Champs Group 5 – Points x 2

Entry Cost: FREE

You can compete as a solo, pair or in a group up to 4 (all team members must be in every photo).

There will be prizes for the 1st place in each of the 3 categories. Prize giving afterwards with a pint in the finish location.

Hope to see as many of you there as possible.
