SUNDAY CLUB RUNS

On Sunday mornings at 7am we have a club run from the main Pirates car park – we all head out together and after approx 2km the group often splits into a longer (often faster) group and a shorter (slightly slower) group. The distances vary but are never shorter than 10km. Closer to Comrades, the longer (faster) group usually runs a 21km route every week.
