English (Warrington) Half Marathon - Recce Runs
In the build-up to the English Half Marathon which is on 21st September we are going
to have 2 club recce runs of the course.
Recce #1 Sat 30th August, 10:00am (after the Warrington Parkrun)
Recce #2 Sun 7th September, 9:00am
Meet in Victoria Park car park. The runs will be done in pace groups (similar to our Tuesday club runs). You can choose whether to run the full course or use a cut-off. See two suggestions below which when combined reduce the route to about 8.5miles.
- Cut-off #1 (Saves 1.5 miles): After 3.5 miles of the race route, at the top of Broad Lane (don't turn left onto Cartridge Lane) continue on to the roundabout and rejoin the race route.
Cut-off #2 (Saves 3 miles): After 6 miles (or 4.5 if you did cut-off #1) in Appleton Thorne at the Thorne Inn (don't continue on to Stretton) turn right down Lumb Brook Road and re-join the race route. Link to race route (from 2012) http://connect.garmin.com/activity/220531969.
