Socials

Introduction

The social calendar is now in full swing for 2018.

The second event of the year was the first pub run of the year.  It took place on 4 May 2018, starting from the Bell at Waltham St Lawrence.  Once again, the weather was kind and the sights, sounds and smells of spring welcomed the runners and walkers on a route around the highways and byways of Waltham St Lawrence that incorporated Shottesbrooke Park.  Afterwards both runners and walkers enjoyed wonderful hospitality provided by The Bell.

The first event of 2018 took place on Friday 23 March with a Curry Night at Chutney Jacks in Maidenhead.

Below is a summary of events that took place during 2017.

The social calendar provides information of all the events that have taken place this year.  Here’s a flavour of some our social events that have taken place in 2017.

Pub Runs

We organise 1 pub run a month during the summer usually from May through to September.  These start by meeting in the car park of the selected pub and then going for a leisurely run as a group.  After returning to the pub we socialise (usually in the garden because we seem to get dry and sunny weather) with a well earned beer (or whatever your favourite tipple is) and food.

Themed Treasure Hunts

This year’s themed treasure hunt was based on the board game Monopoly.

Briefing and planning

Runners were allocated to teams so that all teams had a mixture of runners of all abilities.  Each team was then tasked with running to various points in and around Braywick Park within a time limit of 50 minutes to amass their fortune by building a property portfolio with the highest value.

 

 

 

Awards Evening

We have an annual awards evening to celebrate and recognise the efforts of senior club members.

As well as handing out awards for athletic achievement within the club, there’s also time for a bit of fun with our alternative awards!

The above socials, combined with “It’s a MAC Knockout”, a summer party, a not too serious quiz night (with fish and chip supper), Halloween fun run plus spooky games, and the Christmas meal all add up to a lively social scene.
