WFTR 25th Anniversary Celebration
This special landmark deserves special recognition, so we are organising a weekend of events in the area that inspired the club's name, Windsor Forest.of the stages as you wish.
Stage 1: The weekend starts with a countryside run that (very loosely) follows part of King John's "3 castles" route to Windsor for the signing of the Magna Carta. We will take in Windsor Forest & Great Park for some memorable photo opportunities. *If you use Google Maps, you can get the run here: https://goo.gl/maps/GGHHHyWEfQCwzfZU7
Stage 2: A celebration dinner on Saturday night at the De Vere Beaumont Estate in Old Windsor. To help us celebrate in style, plan to dress in Black Tie or suit & tie and posh frocks. Dinner is a 3-course set menu in a private dining room with music and some other entertainment. Teas and coffees are included with dinner and of course there are a wide choice of beers, wines and spirits available to purchase.
Stage 3: An overnight stay at the De Vere on Saturday night. The De Vere Beaumont Estate is quite impressive and is located in 42 acres of parkland in Old Windsor. We plan to complete the run, phot shoots and lunch then check-in at the hotel by mid-to-late afternoon to give you a few hours to do as you please. You may want to make use of the pool and gym facilities, perhaps take a 10 minute stroll to the Magna Carta site, or simply unwind in your room or at the bar!
Stage 4: After a leisurely breakfast at the hotel on Sunday, we will depart for home. *We initially planned on a run home, however we now realise this is Mother's Day. The feedback has been that the vast majority have other plans and need to set off for home directly. Apologies for any disappointment this may cause.
