TRAINING RUNS

Tuesday Training Runs

We leave at 6:30pm sharp for our regular Tuesday night runs, taking in some of the finest hillsides of South Wales.

If you haven’t been before, contact Gary to let us know you’d like to come – he’s on info@runmdc.org.uk

You’ll need to have with you:

    1. Appropriate kit and fell shoes for the weather – ask if you’re not sure
    2. a basic first aid kit and mobile phone
    3. an In Case of Emergency card with your contact details

Dr Alan Stone has written previously about what might be a useful basic first aid kit for a runner in the hills – read it here

You can use the template here to make your own ICE card – you’ll probably to laminate it…

Please do join our facebook group for latest updates on when and where we’re running.
