Lostock AC: Mince Pie Run – 18 Dec

Joined Lostock AC on Sunday morning for their annual “Mince Pie” run to the Two Lads and then over the top of Winter Hill. Very sociable morning out with mince pies and a “wee dram” at the Two Lads. Plenty of snow but not quite as dry and crisp as yesterday in the Howgills.

  1. I like that idea - I'd run anywhere for a mince pie and a dram!
