TWH Run 09.08.2023: DOES NOT START FROM THE NEVILL

Club Events
Greetings Harriers,
We do not have access to the Nevill cricket club Wednesday 9th August.
We will instead run from the Red Lion in Rusthall at 7:30 and meet up there again afterwards for optional drinks and/or food.
94 Lower Green Road, Rusthall, TN4 8TN
The Red Lion are happy to host us afterwards, but the kitchen is ‘cook to order’ so the club cannot offer any food.
They offer all the great Thai classics and can be cooked very quickly if there isn’t a rush.
The kitchen CLOSES at 10pm.
They have plenty of space inside and outside.

Please park on roads nearby but parking is a bit limited so arrive early. (try Ashley Park)

This week we have an Ed Steele modern classic from 2018.
So, with Ed (dodgy knee) as this week’s Routemaster 🚌, fasten your seat belts and here we go ……
We have a delightful, largely off road 8 mile long route and a shorter option or two – something for everyone.
Starting at The Red Lion we head near to Speldhurst and then onto Poundsbridge before returning back to Rusthall.
I’m planning to flour the route in advance.
The route can be shortened by a couple of miles by taking a more direct route back from Pounsdsbridge.

There is some mud around so wear either some old road shoes or light trail shoes. It is mostly off road but please make sure you are wearing something hi vis for the on road sections.

The route can be found on Strava and I also attach a gpx.
Current forecast for Wednesday is for a delightful sunny 🌞and warm 21C.

7:30 prompt start from the Red Lion – no change rooms or showers but the bar and kitchen are open – it’s time to commit !
