Foreign Exchange

We arrange regular trips to running clubs within Europe at which we compete. The clubs we have strong links with are Cottbus and Garbus in Germany and near Bruge in Belgium. These visits include running, celebrating great friendships and have been known to include boiled egg eating competitions .
