A SWET run is a run across country side of about an hour duration, followed by a social in a local pub. It is a great way for new members to get to know everyone.

A SWET run requires:

1) A pub happy to accommodate 30 runners and their cars on a Wednesday evening.

2) A circular route of around 7 miles, mostly off-road, and preferably with a longer/shorter option along the way.

General points:

  • You are expected to organise a run from a pub with parking
  • Notify the Landlord of our intentions to visit so we don’t get turned away! (Yes it has happened before)
  • Advise the landlord of an increase of parking so we don’t upset the locals etc
  • Duration for the off road run should be approx 1 hour to 1 hour ten minutes
  • You will need to ‘buddy up’ with someone to allow for a route for faster and slow runners to enjoy their evening
