Unofficial training runs

A number of runners will be getting together on Wednesday evenings for unofficial training runs on and around portions of the Baden-Powell trail.
These runs are a great opportunity to experience parts of the Knee Knacker race route and other local trails and to meet like-minded folks.
All skill levels are welcome.
