We are on an away run this Saturday starting at Otford Rec - 8am.

They are sadly only offer the first 1 hour parking free in the Rec Car Park so it may be sensible to bring 50p with you to extend this to 2 hours (£1 for 3hrs to have all the time for a lot of extra coffee – I will try and pack lots of change !!)
This is only 5 min drive from Hollybush Rec, so those that need to be back by 9.15 am to meet (take handovers of) the kids can still do so. Just make sure you let the coach know at the start and we will get you back in time. If you need a lift let me know and I can sort it – please email me or text if it is last minute.
There are several different routes from here all very beautiful. There has been some talk of a horrible hill in it somewhere – but just so you know that’s “just Fake News.’ The advantage of Otford is that if the weather is like today it will be fantastic and if it is rubbish we can keep out of the worst of it on a different route. It also offers plenty of gentle stuff for ‘easy runners’. And “we got the best coffee” and “we got the best bacon butties” – "and I am going to make you pay for it" !!
I am hoping we will be able to do one of the routes we have not done for a couple of years – so it should be something different for many / most of you.
Despite any improvements in the weather you will want to wear off road shoes if you have them.
Good coffee and bacon sandwiches at the Pond View Cafe after - for those that can stop.
