Bradgate Park Boxing Day Run

Posted by Penny on Facebook group:

It is a long standing HRC tradition that we meet at Bradgate Park for an ‘off-road’ run on Boxing Day and this year we are planning to do the same.

We will meet at the main Newtown Linford car park at 9.45, with groups departing on the routes at 10am.

The routes range from 60 mins to 90 mins in length. We usually spilt into three groups; all groups will start off by running up towards ‘Old John’ (Hunts Hill car park) with some then taking in Broombriggs and / or Beacon and/ or Windmill Hill before heading back to Bradgate via Hallgates car park.

It is customary to bring a flask and some mince pies / biscuits to share after the run but we are always finished by 12 noon so people can get home for lunch.
