Our December Virtual Club Series distance remains 3 kilometres. Clockings to be submitted by midnight, Monday, January 4th to allow for wild excess across the festive period. It would be fun if participants could attach a photo of themselves paying homage to either the religious or secular traditions of the season. I think I have a set of antlers lying about somewhere!
