This Thursday is the first of our ‘paced’ runs (more information will follow from our committee regarding pacers etc before Thursday)Penny
I have chosen the ‘Barwell run’ – simply because it is easy to navigate: quite a number of you know this route and all groups follow the same route for the first 8 miles.
Long route: 9 miles
Short route: 8.2 miles
As per the long route but omit the Tudor Road loop at the end and run straight back up Ashby Road.
6.20 meet at leisure centre for a 6.30 prompt departure.
