TWH run – Wednesday 3rd April 2024

Club Events
Greetings Harriers
We have our first major domestic marathon of the season in Brighton on Sunday. Good luck to all competitors and supporters. Early predictions are for mild sunny weather with the odd light shower, which should be ideal for the post run fish and chip lunch. And who better to share it with ........
A fun place with a good time hopefully guaranteed for all.
This week's run is a repeat of a Phil Long special from 2014, with more delights and options than the middle aisle of Lidl.
We have a main 7.5 mile long route and shorter route options of 6.8. 6.0 or 5.3 miles. Phil has also very kindly included some extra 1.0 and 0.7 mile loops for the very keen - something for everyone.
No head torch will be needed this week.
So, with Phil as this week's Routemaster , fasten your seat belts and let's go ......
Whether you're training hard, tapering , recovering from your weekend marathon training run, or just want to run with your friends, there is something for you.
This week's route is mostly well lit but please try and stay in groups as much as possible, looking out especially for guests, newer members and wear something bright and hi viz.
Current forecast for Wednesday is for a dry and mild 10C.
Map and GPX (6 mile and 7.5 mile) attached.
There is also a walking group that sets off at the same time. So if you're injured or tired come along and walk with friends.
The Nevill is closed for repair until May, so we will continue to utilise the fine facilities of the Nevill Tennis Club next door to us for baggage and post run showers followed by our post-run refreshment. Turnout has been great and we want to keep that going.
So after the run head back to the tennis club - the perfect temporary home for the top seeds of Kent running.
The ideal place to perfect your fueling strategy.
Due to refurbishment work, the women's changing room will be unavailable at the tennis club for the next few weeks. There is a small disabled toilet facility on the ground floor which can be used to change in if needed and bags can be left in the bar area.
Additional toilets are being provided adjacent to the club house but unfortunately, no alternative female shower facilities are available for the duration of the work.
7:30 prompt start from the Tennis Club Bar - Tennis Club MENS change rooms and showers are open, then its afters upstairs at the Tennis Club Bar - it's time to commit !
If anyone has an idea for a route please get in contact - all contributions welcome.
