> Will & Steve's Headtorch Runs: Beamish

The last headtorch run of Winter 2009-10 was on Thursday 25th March at Beamish, just before the the start of English Summer Time. Ten runners came along; two from Elvet Striders, one from Borrowdale, one from Low Fell, five from DFR and only one from NFR (me). We were also accompanied by five dogs.

We had an excellent run around Ousbrough and Hellhole Woods, covering six miles with some short steep climbs and descents, and some fast technical sections with only a few slips and trips. Afterwards we went to The Stables where we sampled a couple of beers that are brewed on site. Highly recommended.

Thanks to everyone who took part in the headtorch runs this year. Look out for them starting again in October. We'll try to include a couple of Northumberland routes too.

I will also be organising some training and social runs over the summer for which I will distribute details shortly.

Many thanks

Will (NFR) & Steve (DFR)
