Winter Head Torch Runs

Head torch runs have now effectively taken over from our traditional winter pub run on Thursday nights and run from September through to April at which point we then revert to the Summer pub runs .

The next run will be on 19th March at The Kings Head, Holmbury St Mary, RH5 6NP @ 7.00 pm. Park in road at front of pub.

With a different start point each week and including a walking group option as well, these start at 7.00 pm and are organised as single group sessions for safety. Generally, the runs are planned over a 6-8 mile distance (75′ – 90′) with the walk at half of that distance. We instruct everyone to bring a decent head torch and something hi-viz. Start/Finish point is from a pub so that anyone who so wishes can rehydrate as appropriate (!) afterwards.

Anyone interested in joining us should provide their email details, which they should send to and they will be added to the weekly email that goes out to everyone advising of the following weeks meeting point details.

We currently have in excess of 90 names on our weekly mail out which is growing by the month as ‘off-road’ running/walking takes on a greater level of interest.

We DESPERATELY need someone to take over from Pete Dudman as the summer pub run co-ordinator. Pete has done a great job over the years but does now feel it’s time to step down and pass over the baton to someone else. We need to get someone in place soon as April will soon be upon us and these things need forward planning. No co-ordinator, no summer pub runs!
