Beat The Barge returns for its 5th sailing on Saturday 3rd August – Start time 4pm

This is a fun (Approximate) 5 mile, multi terrain course taking in off road, redways and the canal towpath – suitable for anyone who can run the distance

Although badged as a race, the event is a fun run for club members with a great event village in a beautiful location…….with a pub on site!

We hope that everyone will stay and enjoy the surroundings after the run – there will be refreshments available but picnicing is positively encouraged

We would like to welcome back lots of past participants but plenty of new ones too but are especially pleased to welcome back Captain and Master Bates who will return with their barge again after enjoying last year so much…… it might have had something to do with squirting so many of you with water pistols!!
