Weekly News – 21st August

Wake up and Smell the Roses Run

So the Wake up and Smell the roses run is changing to a Saturday for the moment which I kinda think is better cause you have Sunday to rest and can go out on Saturday night for few drinkies if you like 🙂 LOL!!

So does anyone fancy doing 26km tomorrow with shorter options also available. We are meeting at the south beach car park tomorrow morning at 9.30am. See you there J
