Complete either one lap (for the short course) or two laps for the long course any time between 18 of April 2020 (the original date) and the following Sunday (26 April 2020) and post your time to this group. I’ve also set up the long and short courses as Strava segments, so if you do Strava you should see your run on the segment leaderboard. No entry fee, no prizes. It’s the taking part that counts. You can start and finish anywhere you like on the route as long as you start and finish in the same place. To show up on the Strava leaderboard, you would need to start and finish at the bottom of the steps just after the bridge leading to Newfield School as shown on the map. The bluebells have just started to appear and the woods are looking beautiful. There are lots of other people using the woods for their daily rations of government approved exercise. Please show consideration to other users and try and give them the recommended 2m berth. If you have to stop to let someone pass, then do. It will only slow you down by a few seconds.James Halse on facebook
