Summer 2017 Training Plan:

18/5 old john/saddle – yee hah!
25/2 Square next to the ruins – be cool not square for this one
1/6 monument hill – historic significance
8/6 rectangle in the middle of the park – flat but fun
1/6 monument hill – historic significancetve there after notices I suspect!
22/6 plantation/golf course hill – you need to see this to believe it and car park by Old John for me after notices.

Everyone welcome – inclusive and different and the hills are alive with the sound of “finish in your head – polite thoughts only”. Phil Chritchlow is the committee lead for any questions.
