Nutrition Talk – Wed 23rd November – 19:15 – Henman Suite @ David Lloyd Leisure Centre

Nutrition Talk

The benefits of eating to your individuality with Samantha Downton Naturopathic Nutritional Therapist and fellow runner

After polling our members on areas of interest, we are delighted to invite you to a Members Information Evening on how Nutrition can help with your running and general health.

Each person responds differently to food, stress and other external influences which means that there is no ‘one size fits all’ approach that will work definitively for everyone, we aim to look at some of the basic principles to be considered. The talk will include general nutrition advice, how to help increase speed of healing following an injury and ways to individualise food for you.

Date: Wednesday 23rd November

Time: 7.15 – talk to start at 7.30 approximate finish time 9pm

Venue: The Henman Suite, David Lloyd Leisure, Livingstone Drive, Newlands, MK15 0DL

The Club have kindly offered to fund the evening, so it is free to all members, please could you let us know if you wish to attend.

Xmas Do 2016 – Update

Following the success of the weekends BBQ and while we’re all in pretty good spirits I though i’d take this opportunity to remind you of the current situation regarding the MKLR Christmas Party.

Last week we paid deposits for 49 people. As we didn’t fill enough places straight away to get the venue exclusively ours they will now allow any other interested parties to apply for the remaining places. There are plenty of places currently still up for grabs so as you decide you wish to attend then we can keep paying for places until such time we are told that the venue is full.

    The club Early Bird discount has finished

But until the end of the month the venue have their own 10% discount making the cost of a ticket £35.55 per person. After this discount ends the price then goes up to the full amount of £39.50 per person.
Get in early to avoid any disappointment. We will be posting regularly throughout the month with updates.
