Throw Back Thursday

The Yarnbury Yomp

This time last year things got real. We had been working hard in the background to see if an event was viable; given all the Covid related restrictions.

Before we knew it the WORL community were preparing for race #3 .

And what a fantastic day it turned out to be… Thank you.

Running Clubs had travelled from all across Wiltshire and even beyond, gathering for team photos in the perfect pre-race weather. We all had a lot of fun that day and delight in the fact that people still talk about it today.

Club Sessions

We have three Club Sessions a week. Tuesday we train, Wednesdays we have a social run and Sundays we explore….
