This Thursday (19th Sept) we are continuing to try out the idea of a single ‘elastic’ course, stretching to suit everyone. We’re continuing to tinker with the most appropriate distances for each of our usual groups, so thanks for your patience and feedback so far!
This week’s course is a familiar clockwise run around the street-lit edges of Knaresborough which sees everyone sharing the same beginning and ending section, with a few variations mid-run. We *might* even all end up running-in together through the Aspin estate! All of the route is tried-and-tested winter territory so will be familiar to most.
To start with, everyone will head left from from the club, up into Knaresborough, down Castle Ings, and along Waterside to the World’s End pub.
At this point the Run Group will make a foray into Conyngham Hall whilst all other groups head up to Bond End and across the new roundabouts onto Borobridge Road.
At the garage and parade of shops, the routes split:
Jog 2 take Stockwell Road and Lane to Chain Lane
Jog 1 take Borobridge Road and Halfpenny Lane
Inters/Run Take Tentergate, Scriven Road, Greengates and Half-penny.
All routes join up at the Chain Lane Fish Shop junction.
To finish, everyone will head along Chain Lane, heading up the Spinney and through the snicket, following a common route through the Eastfields area: Malham Way, Farndale, Eastfield and Nidderdale. A run along Manse Lane and Wetherby Road brings everyone back into the Aspin Estate where we will all make the final climb up Rievaulx Avenue and Aspin Lane to the club.
As previously, if pace or circumstance necessitate it, your run leader might vary the route a little to suit!
Enjoy your runs and do keep the feedback coming on this new initiative!
