Members of the the Olive Tree Trailblazers and their supporters held a "12 Laps of Christmas" event on a very chilly December morning in Tilgate Park. Participants were encouraged to run or walk 12 laps of the lake in Tilage Park. Mince pies, mulled wine and other tasty treats were on sale for those who completed the full 12 laps, a smaller number of laps or even just stood and cheered people on! The Trailblazers is a friendly and supportive running group set up and run by volunteers to encourage those affected by cancer to experience the many benefits of group exercise in the great outdoors. There is no charge to join the Trailblazers and all levels of runner are welcome, from complete beginers to marathon runners. A variety of training programmes is run from time to time including "couch to 5k". To find out more about the Trailblazers and to join the group, please visit their Facebook page @ottrailblazers.
