The Secret Garden Stride was a shorter run beginning at the start of the original Cat Lane Canter, at Newfield School. There was no official route but runners needed to call in at five checkpoints on their way to and from the Secret Garden in Graves Park. 
The race resulted in much debate about the short routes and the benefits of a clockwise or anti-clockwise direction.
