Adderbury Running Club is Up and Running

Adderbury Running Club has kept going throughout the pandemic. During lockdown 1, we had to run individually, and it wasn’t until halfway through last year that we could start running in groups again, albeit groups of no more than six. During lockdown 3, we could exercise in pairs and every Sunday morning a small number of enthusiastic runners turned up even in the very worst of weather conditions to set off in groups of two at 10-minute intervals.
