As the club is no longer in “business as usual” mode and I know how much you love those Wednesday night routes, we have decided to send a route each week that Harriers might like to do at any time during the course of the week. There won’t be any leader boards and no one will be checking up on you, but it gives Harriers an excuse to mix their routines up a bit from their usual array of runs.
So as this week’s Routemaster 🚌, fasten your seat belts and here we go ……
This week’s run is a repeat of one that Mark Taylor set for us back in 2017. Mark needs no introduction to our members. He is best known now as the long suffering and highly successful race director of our half marathon. He has won our road race champs and XC champs in all categories from SM to M60 and has won almost all our club trophies at some stage during a long and very successful career and is still a frequent winner at age group level of the Kent events he competes in.
You don’t need to start and finish at the Nevill, in fact I suggest you start and finish at the point closest to where you live.
Please don’t run in groups and please bear in mind the social distancing guidelines.
The full route is 7.2 miles with a shorter routes of 5.5/5.7 miles. It explores the Hurst Woods area (which should be much drier than it was over the winter and you might even sue a bluebell) and the roads back should be quieter than “normal” – something for everyone.
Start whenever, wherever, what could be easier – its time to commit !
Any offers for setting routes gratefully received (especially if someone from Tonbridge wants to set a local route that offers TW residents an opportunity to sample its delights). British Summer Time started on 29th March so off road options come into play.
