Torchlite Tip 5K Southport 18th Jan 2012

Wednesday 18th January sees the penultimate evening gathering at the
former tip site adjacent to Dobbies, Benthams Way, Southport.

A social 5k off road course illuminated only by head torches, glow
sticks and heat generated by the soles of the runners! As an
alternative to midweek winter evening training, it provides a testing
session with an element of competitiveness for those willing and able.

November’s event saw thirty-five runners with Ben Johnson lighting up
the course with a blistering 17 minutes 48 seconds. Forty
participants is certainly a possibility this time particularly if
supported by the Liverpool end which would no doubt keep Ben on his

These things can only happen if supported so tweet, email, text,
whatever! But be sure not to miss this great fun evening.

Usual start time of 7pm come rain or shine (which is unlikely)

Loan of head torches available on the night. As usual any helpers
would be most appreciated.

I'll be thinking of you Rick, as I head out for my twilight run at 8pm on a balmy evening down here :)


Thanks Ewen, but the sun is returning with each passing day the sun stays longer and in about 9 weeks spring will be here :0]
