NEXT UPGeneral Run (Barrowford)
Meet from 6.15pm to start training 6.30pm.
BE SEEN & BE SAFE: Please wear high visibility clothing and bring a head torch or other illumination if you have it.
This is a very accessible and adaptable weekly training run that is open to senior runners of all abilities. Although everyone will follow the same general route outlined below, people may be split into two or three groups on the night - each with a qualified run leader - to run between four and eight miles.
STANDARD ROUTE • 7.1 miles • View on Mapometer
All the way down Harrison Drive, turning right at the bottom along Vivary Way. At the second pedestrian crossing veer right down the ramp onto Barrowford Road and continue along this all the way to Barrowford turning left at the George & Dragon. Turn right at Nursery Time up Church Street (becomes Wheatley Lane Road) and continue uphill past the cemetery. Turn left down Carr Hall Road, then left at the bottom along the bypass past Seed Hill. Keep left at the roundabout and head back through Barrowford centre and up Barrowford Road.
SHORTER ROUTE • 5.2 miles • View on Mapometer
Follow the first and last two miles of the Standard Route but turn left down Higher Causeway rather than going all the way up Wheatley Lane Road.
May do loops of Barrowford reservoir (summmer only), hill reps on Carr Hall Road, loop around lower Carr Hall Road/Carr Road, or loop around Higher Causeway.
Variations & Extensions
Loop around Higher Causeway or loop around Carr Road, Park Avenue and Carr Hall Road back on to bypass.
