Wednesday 18 April – Fun Runrunning

Meeting Point : Meet in Crowne Plaza Reception

Run for fitness, enjoy famous landmarks and connect with delegates…just run!!

This year the run is led by our conference committee chair Andrew Wallace.

Why not join like-minded delegates for an early morning run around the beautiful sights of Stratford-upon-Avon.  We will meet at 07.00 in The Crowne Plaza reception on Wednesday 18 April. Are you more of a ‘slow jogger’ than a sprinter? Don’t worry, everyone is welcome and the run will be no more than 5km in length.

If you are interested in getting involved, please sign up the registration desk on Tuesday so that we know how many of you we expect.

Disclaimer: Delegates participate entirely at their own risk. The organisers take no responsibility for any injury that may be incurred during the fun run.
