Awayday run Tuesday 23rd May Abington Pigotts (near Royston) SG8 0SD

This month's awayday run is from the fabulous Pig & Abbot in Abington Pigotts, a little gem of a place complete with open fireplaces, oak beams, well-kept ales, a good selection of wines, good food and a warm welcome from the owners, Pat and Mick. It's a freehouse so there's a regularly changing selection of guest beers, plus the regulars of London Pride and Adnams.

For anyone who came to this run last year and braved the most torrential downpour since Noah built the Ark, this year I've pre-empted it by not arranging the run for the same the week I'm on leave, so hopefully we won't have a repeat of the weather.

The full route is exactly 5 miles with a shortcut option of 4.2 miles, or alternatively you could just do an out and back to Steeple Morden and that would make it around 5K. I'll bring maps.

I'm laying on chips at 8pm, so if you'd like some please post here before Friday 19th May so that I know how many bowls to order. Alternatively if you'd like a full meal then please phone the pub in advance on 01763 853515, the menu's on the website. It's always fully booked for food so unfortunately it's not possible to order food on the night.

Hope you can make it. Please could you post here if you're coming along and let me know if you want chips or not?

About half and half Deb, the first half's a very runnable trail (even I don't grumble at it!), the second half's road.

Last orders for chips! I'm selflessly going to the Pig tonight (just for the sake of the club, you understand.....) to get the chips order in.

Thanks to those who have said they can come, glad you can make it and see you Tuesday.
