Social events for the senior section include a monthly post-training get-together known as “Second Thursday”. It’s held at a local pub, The Hare & Hounds, which is just a short jog from the club house. Each Summer we organise a running pub crawl known as “Pubs On The Run”, which is usually a five mile jog around local hostelries – club colours are essential (see picture below!). Some of our more intrepid members host running-themed talks to discuss their exploits. The year culminates in December with our “Christmas Cracker Relay”, in which teams of three runners carry the baton (a Christmas cracker) around the streets of Leyton, and is followed by a bring & share party and prizegiving. Finally we have our Christmas party, the one social event in which there is no running involved! Only the hardiest members stay until the end AND manage the subsequent Sunday morning social run!
