Here you'll find a list of upcoming socials and events. Have a look at the facebook event for details of each event and feel free to contact the social sec (Emma Simms) or events coordinator (Aeda Cantillon) if you have questions or if you'd like to suggest something for the calendar. If you're not on facebook then we can send you the details of an event by email or just ask at a Monday night run. Emma can be contacted at [email protected] You must be a member of Didsbury Runners to attend events organised by the group. For events organised by other parties, such as races and Parkrun, non-members are of course welcome to attend those events as they wish.
Saturday Mornings - Parkrun. A lot of Didsbury Runners regularly attend Parkrun at various parks around Manchester. Parkruns are free 5k events that take place every Saturday at 9am. They're friendly and inclusive and are a great way to meet other members of the club. You need to register here (www.parkrun.org.uk/) before your first run so you can get a barcode and then all you do is turn up with your barcode each time you go to an event. People usually post which Parkrun they're going to before the weekend so keep an eye out on facebook for this. If you'd like to give it a go but are not sure how it works or if you have any questions, please ask. You've probably realised by now that we love Parkrun so will be more than happy to talk about it!

ICE-CREAM RUN- Wednesday 20th SeptemberThis fun social 5-6k run will start from the Ice Shack in Withington, meeting at 6.30pm ready for a 6.45pm run. We'll aim to split into 2 groups of different paces so please come along, whatever your running pace is. As this is primarily a social run both groups will run a modest pace.
