Night Runner, Fri 21 Jan

I love running at night. I especially love those crazy, quiet hours during ultras - like at 2am or 3am - when the streets and settlements are silent.

For a year or two I've been sitting on the idea of a full moon night running thing. And, with the moon currently big and beautiful, I quite fancy a run.

So... here's the gig:

  • Friday, 21 January 2011
  • Time: 18h45 for 19h00 start. If you are late, tough.
  • Venue: Upper car park at Bedford Centre, Bedford Gardens (cnr Kirkby and Smith Rd - Arbroath becomes Kirkby -). Meet in the region of Vini's. There are also other foodie places like Fishaways on the exterior of the building. I access the Upper Level (open air) parking from Kirkby Road (if you're travelling South, take the entrance on your right).
  • Distance: 10-12km
  • Route: Scenic route through the suburb of Bedfordview. Moon rises at 20h12. We'll also run past the 'fish tank' house.
  • Pace: Conversational; this is a run, not a race
  • Bring: Water bottle and reflective bib - be visible as this is a night run
  • Drinks, pizza or whatever afterwards at Vini's (pizza/pasta place - they have outside seating for sweaty, smelly runners).
