Introduction

Okay Cat fans here is some information for route 3 the Woodbourn Burn Return. Here is a Strava link to the “pure route” – because we all like a bid of moral guidance with our running I’m sure, Here also is the list of checkpoints. The eagle eyed amongst you will spot that it may be possible to cut a few corners here and there. The pure route is super easy to navigate and is street lit throughout so should be possible to run at any time. The area around the stadium is well lit but is a bit isolated and not overlooked so just to be aware if running at night. On the pure route if you cut even one teeny corner you can probably do the race in around 10k so hopefully that is pretty accessible to all. There is some elevation but there is as much down as there is up so potentially a nice fast race. I will put a gpx link in comments for you non Stravaites . I propose race “week” goes from Sat 5thDecember – Sun 13th so giving us two full weekends. Enjoy!
