James Bell

As I am the first on the list to plan an ‘away’ run I have found a really pleasant 5 miler to start and finish at Jacksons Boat pub in Sale. (Takes in the river Mersey, Chorlton Waterpark and some of Sale Waterpark)

Address for your satnav is:

Rifle Rd
M33 2LX

bear in mind you need to pay £1 to park at the pub or on the road outside but it is taken off your drinks bill.

So for those interested I will see you there for 18:15 on Tuesday 28th June


Guide Running

Would you like to become a guide runner? If so, England Athletics in conjunction with British Blind Sport have the workshop for you. The “Sight Loss and Guide Running” workshop covers a number of areas including types of visual impairment (VI), behaviour and terminology and how to make running sessions VI friendly.

The two hour workshop also includes a practical element where attendees get the chance to experience guiding and being guided by each other.

You don’t have to be a coach or leader to attend, you can be a runner (mixed ability level is welcomed) looking to support people with a visual impairment.

Workshop Details:
Wednesday 11th May, 6.30 – 9pm
Sportcity, Manchester, M11 3FF
