South Side Six pub run
13th Jan, TBC
Start from: South Side
The challenge is to start at the flag pole in Queens Park and visit the 6 parkland checkpoints in order, as well as a pub of your choice in between each park. Pubs can be found without much diversion from the route shown on the map. You do not have to choose the absolute optimum pubs in terms of location, instead focusing on finding a good ale!

The run is be entirely self-timed and you will be trusted to take in each checkpoint. With your team mates you need to decide what time you want to start so as to finish as close to 4pm as you can. Remember to consider your running time (the optimum course is about 16 miles), your drinking time in the pub (are you aiming for 5 minute pints or a more sociable 15 minute visit), and if you are drinking (which is not mandatory) I imagine you won’t be running at PB pace!
There will be a prize for the team that finishes closest to 4pm. To date we have booked a table at The Clockwork Beer Company afterwards for some food and a few beers. So if the weather is foul when you finish we can meet in the warmth of the pub rather than hanging around by the flag pole in Queens Park.

If you fancy taking part contact Sharon Taylor who will help match-up anyone looking for a group or pair to join
