So dust off your trainers, dig out your Santa outfit and work off the Xmas party excesses by joining us for a jog around the local area.

We’re are delighted to announce we will be teaming up with Elmet Lions again this year & we will be fundraising much needed funds for the South Milford PTA and the Cricket Club.
