Run and Curry Night: Thursday, 23 February 2012
We are celebrating the end of a 4-month programme of training with the Adult Endurance Programme, and almost the end of a series of Saturday sessions at Ogden Water. But we want to open it up beyond the forty people on these courses, to anyone who might be interested in joining the AET programme when it restarts, with some “FREE taster sessions” on 27 February.
EVERYONE who has attended any of the sessions on Saturdays at Ogden water or the Monday-Wednesday sessions is really welcome (plus friends and partners, of course). You’ve all worked dead hard in the past weeks – so it’s important to reward yourselves.
The plan is to join up for a curry in Shipley this Thursday, 23 February. But before that you would have the option to attend your own club run, or if your club doesn’t run on Thursdays or you’re not a member of a running club you are welcome to join either of the following two groups for a run:
Run from Bingley
Bingley Harriers – meet at 7:20pm, BRADFORD & BINGLEY SPORTS CLUB, Wagon Lane, Bingley – BD16 1LT

After we have worked up an appetite we will all meet up at the AAGRAH, Shipley for a curry and a few drinks in the company of fellow runners.

And if you want the fun to continue, I hear there is talk about heading over to the Old Tramshed bar in Saltaire (up from the Aagrah) for a few further drinks, that to be decided on the night.
This event is open to anyone! There is no need to book a place, just turn up on the night.
Feel free to invite friends and other runners, the more the merrier!
