This week in the Mile 27/Journal we hear some tips on how to start out in trail running from UK leading ultra runner Robbie Britton.
We’ve got some news for ya.
In January this year, as many of you know, we took over The Old Dairy Café near Regents Park as a base for our FATRUN LDN Run Club. Since then we’ve been working out how to make the most of the space and whether or not we can sustain a run club alongside getting the café off the ground…as well as learning how to make flat whites/tiptoe around tricky questions from coffee connoissurs/some basic plumbing.
3 months in, and we’re v excited to announce that we are rebranding FATRUN LDN & The Old Dairy and bringing them both under one banner – Mile27.
Mile27 Run Club kicks of THIS WEDNESDAY and is pretty much a continuation of FATRUN LDN. The Wednesday sessions will take the same format as before – a 6.30 start from the clubhouse à 8km of jogging through Fitzrovia led by Matt, George & Tim à smoothies and a catch up back at HQ. With summer on its way [and an alcohol licence in the works], we can’t wait to get back in the swing of things under the new name. New merchandise will be coming too including T Shirts and Water Bottles... See you on Weds!
· Facebook events will be posted on Facebook every week so keep an eye out for info on the Mile27 Facebook page
We’ve got a new smoothie/juice menu coming next week, a shop section stocking Mile27 kit plus our favourite running brands including Ciele, Stance and Like the Wind, a bar coming in May serving Espresso Martinis, CRATE Brewery ales and Prosecco, all along with three enthusiastic baristas to serve you. Need we say more? You probably want an address, which is 35 Conway St, London W1T 6BW…and some opening hours, which are 7.30-17.00 Mon to Fri with Weekend opening coming soon…
· EVENTS: Headed up by Matt, we’re organising a series of events at the Clubhouse including talks from interesting people, drinks evenings, supper clubs and more…
Think that’s about it for now, except for us to say a big thank you to everyone in the Run Club community who has put up with our constant questioning and backtracking - all of your ideas and feedback are massively appreciated and we’re looking forward to getting the runs in with you all over the summer months.
If you’ve got any ideas for events or a product you think we should sell let us know – in the meantime see you down at the Clubhouse soon!
Tim, George & Matt
