TWH run – Wednesday 6th March 2024

Club Events
Greetings Harriers
Struggling to keep your head above all the water ?
Then fear not, the outlook for the next week or so looks much drier and even sunny at times.
This week’s run is a repeat of one that legendary TWH runner and former race director Mark Taylor set for us a few years back. Up Warwick Park (hmmm) but then opens up to a rare foray onto the other side of Forest Road.
So, with Mark as this week’s Routemaster , fasten your seat belts and let’s go ……
Whether you are returning from skiing, one of the 50 recovering from Paddock Wood, marathon training or just want to run with your friends, there is something for you.
The long route is 6.8 miles and the short route 5.0 miles – something for everyone
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 with a head torch an optional accessory.
Current forecast for Wednesday is for a dry and mild 7C.
Map and GPX attached.
There is also a walking group that sets off at the same time. So if you’re injured, tired or just want to negotiate the water in style, 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 knock back a few lime and sodas while in training.
The following week – Wed 13th – there won’t be a club run, as we have our annual general meeting at the King Charles the Martyr hall starting at 8pm. It is your chance to help shape the club’s future.
7:30 prompt start from the Tennis Club Bar – Tennis Club 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.
