This year’s charity Friends of the Cancer Centre who are based at the heart of the Cancer Centre at Belfast City Hospital, the charity funds life-saving and life-changing projects that make a real and lasting difference to the lives of thousands of local people affected by cancer year in year out.
The suits cost £10 for which you will get your suit, and a light meal in Montgomery's at the end of the evening. It really is all about the club celebrating Christmas and helping a good cause.
For those of you who are new to this, the evening is very much a walk - slow run affair.
The route (guided by marshals) will leave Leisure Centre, go to Braid Town Hall, around the town, the Adair Arms, Tower Centre, and finish in Montgomery’s and sing a few tuneful carols at the bandstand along the way!
There have been a few incidents and accidents at training over the last weeks. Please read the safety advice below. As someone who's not been able to join you running for a while and has been driving near groups on Monday evenings, please be advised that many of you are poorly visible to traffic. Reflective gear is essential.
