Thursday Routes – 26 Sep

This route isn’t in the ‘big book’ so make sure you know where it goes! Anti-clockwise around Hinckley / Burbage with a few loops. The direction on the map may not be apparent so to clarify, the route heads up Rugby Rd to Burbage first before going back to Hinckley past JCC and along part of Normandy Way then returning to the Leisure Centre via Hollycroft.
For those requiring a shorter route, turn left at the Butt Lane / Leicester Rd junction and head back to the leisure centre for a 6 mile route (approx).
Usual 6:20pm meet for a 6:30pm departure from the leisure centre.
Please wear hi-viz tops as it will be dark by the end of our run if you are on the long route.

Thursday Routes – 19 Sep

Thursday Routes: Ref S25
Long: 8.8 miles
Short: 7.2 miles
Still just about hanging onto the lighter evenings although I think this will be our last Summer route
🙁
It is a similar route to last week, just a little different at the start, but it allows a mix of Burbage Common before dark and some street lit roads at the end so I hope that this is OK for everyone.
6:20pm meet for prompt departure at 6:30pm. Wear something bright if you can to ensure that we are visible towards the end of the run.
See you there

Thursday Routes – 12 Sep

S24

Long route: 8.7 miles
Short route: 7.2 miles
There won’t be many more opportunities to run around the lanes
this year so this route takes us across the Common, round Aston Flamville then back into Burbage with the last 2-3 miles being on street lit roads.
We do go across the Common but it is dry underfoot so will not spoil your running shoes!
Please note that from next week, you will need to consider digging out your Hi-Viz tops with these becoming a necessity by the end of the month.
Tomorrow’s meet as usual is 6:20pm for a 6:30pm departure at the Leisure Centre.
See you there ?

Care point: After mile 4 turn right into footpath after the church
