October Challenge

I thought it was time I updated the website with the October challenge (it is half way through the month after all!)

It’s very simple – two laps of the Golf Course, anti-clockwise, starting and finishing by the clubhouse.  Look carefully at the route on the map, I’m not going to give too many directions, it will be up to you to work out your navigation. As long as it is on Strava it counts so feel free to look for as many shortcuts as Strava will let you get away with! (But don’t whinge to me if you try it and it doesn’t count!)

Evenings are drawing in and you’ve got 6 miles to cover so if you want to do it in daylight (recommended) then quicker runners will need to start before 6pm and slower runners will want to be underway by 5.30pm. At the end of the month you will need to go even earlier. You can run it at night with a head-torch if you wish but this is only recommended for experienced and confident runners.

It’s uneven and possibly slippery and some of it is a bit out of the way, so wear appropriate shoes and take appropriate precautions (eg. let someone know when you are going and when you expect to be back, consider carrying a phone, run with a buddy). That’s about it. Have fun and let the doubling commence!
