Road running

Northgate Arena Group

Monday and Thursday 6:00pm from Northgate Arena, Chester CH2 2AU. A friendly, mixed ability group, ideal for beginners but also suitable for anyone wanting an informal, gently-paced run. Free, though all who attend regularly are encouraged to join West Cheshire AC. Turn up and speak to Mike Lamb. See here for a flyer.

As at 19-10-20, the Arena foyer is being refurbished and is fenced off, so no access.  (indoor users only are allowed through various doors depending on activity). Plus, with COVID-19, changing and other facilities are not accessible to us. We still meet outside the foyer, scattered about for social distancing. A list of attendees, with contact details, is noted for health and safety requirements.
