Monthly 5 Mile Handicap – Tuesday 2nd Feb

Monthly 5 mile Handicap tonight starting from the Mill on the A6 we gather at the entrance to the River Gardens entrance on the A6 side of the Mill. All runners welcome, if you’ve not done this before come along its a great way to bench mark your running on a monthly basis , relatively flat course along the A6 to the Hurt Arms Car park then turn around and run back , runners are set off at times according to pace with the aim of most people arriving back at the mill around the same time , so you feel you want to try and stay ahead of the people setting of behind you or your trying to chase down the group in front of you !! We then publish the times with the “winner” being the most improved time on the course.

Please check the results section of the website if you need to check your previous finish times.
