RUN 2 – THE CROWN AT MARNHULL
Thank you to Spencer and Ian for our lovely run around Marnhull and another splendid meal at The Crown afterwards.

RUN 1 – THE CRICKETERS – SHROTON

Thank you to Lynda for organising our first post lockdown Summer run, supported by many of you with lots enjoying a meal (tables of no more than 6) in the Cricketers afterwards.



I think you will agree that we enjoyed our Summer runs in 2020…

I hope you all feel that you have benefitted from joining us on our Summer runs on Tuesday nights. It has not been entirely easy but we got out there and ran together when it was possible. Thanks to Lynda and Adam for their first year of organising, and everyone else who organised runs.

Summer Runs will hopefully be back in the Spring. Keep safe everyone.

See our Club Updates page for any further information. 


Thanks to Amanda for a great run from Stourhead on Tuesday 1st September

Our first Summer run was on Tuesday 4th August at Adam’s Farm in Hammoon, DT10 2DB. We enjoyed a 6ish mile run and a picnic afterwards in a field. It was great to see the Doddlers out again.


Please note that Lynda and Adam are organising the programme this year, so please get in touch if you need more details or would like to organise a run.


A few points to note…

Whilst there is no limit on group size nor any need to pre book attendance or indeed that attendees be paid up members of the club (though obviously we would like you to be), the run leader will be taking a register of names and contact details of those in attendance. These records will be retained for 3 weeks in case of any need to track and trace.

We are not expecting the routes to be marked so either stick close but not too close to someone who knows the route or navigate from the maps. 

Runners should come ready to run, carry a mask in case they need to assist an injured runner and not attend if they in any way feel unwell. It will be wonderful to see the Doddler Family running together once again. 


Well that was the last of our Tuesday Summer runs for this year (Tuesday 24th September 2019). Thank you Dave for organising it and for the curry at the Simla afterwards.

We are going to miss these runs/walks. A big thank you to Dave for co-ordinating them all, and for everyone who organised runs from various pubs around the county or from their homes. It has been a great year and below you will find a few photos from our 2019 summer runs.
