A WADAC Social Event---17th October 2015

Now here’s a fact you may not know---WADAC’s Lucy Elliot and John Gore are members of Southampton & District Motorcycle Club!!

Apparently Lucy’s motorbike is a 1000cc superbike. Fast and spritely like her running. John’s is more from the vintage mould!!

Anyway, the Motorcycle Club has invited all WADAC members to a Social event at their club house on Saturday 17th October 2015 starting at 7.30pm.

The address is: The Cranbury Centre, Cranbury Road, Eastleigh SO50 5HT.

Entry is free. Just turn up on the night.

The catch is you’ll have to listen to live music from 5 Shades of Grey. WADAC’s chairman plays bass guitar!

Let's get Wednesday night social runs going again after the summer hols!

Wednesday night social runs always used to be a great chance to have an easy run, chatting to friends. It’s great that everyone takes Tuesday and Thursday sessions so seriously but there’s always room for a less-pressured run between hard sessions. Of course, if you can’t get to a Tuesday or Thursday session, you can make Wednesday nights as hard as you like by running with a faster group.

Wednesday runs also provide a great way to meet other WADAC members. Lots of people only go to Tuesdays or only go to Wednesdays and never the twain shall meet.  It would be wonderful to blur those lines a bit again.

To help re-establish Wednesday nights, we’d like to encourage everyone to get together for a social run on Weds 9th September.    We want to make it an ‘occasion’ and make a real effort to get a record number of people along.  It would showcase the club in its truly friendly awesomeness to any potential members/non-members we manage to get along. 

So if you’ve never been to a Wednesday night run – make this your first.  If you used to go to Wednesday night runs, come along to remember why you used to love it so much. And bring a friend!

Hope to see you all on Weds 9th at River Park Leisure Centre, upstairs by the entrance to the pool changing rooms at 6.50, ready to run at 7.10.
