I enjoyed our 9 mile route from the Mitchell Centre so much that I’m proposing we start there again on Saturday 11th September for our 11 mile route (was it the route I enjoyed or the coffee and free taster of cake afterwards who knows)!?
Meet in the car park off Weeford Road B75 6NA at 8:40. PLEASE NOTE 8:40 START as gates open 8:30.
The outward route is the same as last time, head left then right on Tamworth Road then first left onto Bedford Road.
Run down to Rectory Road where you enter Rectory park more or less opposite, run through the car park and pick up the cycle route heading right towards Newhall Valley.
We basically follow that cycle route all the way to Eachelhurst Road at about 4.5 miles then turn and retrace our steps.
Anyone wanting a shorter route should turn at Wylde Green Road at 3 miles for a 6 mile round trip.
On the way back take care to take the right fork before Newhall Allotments to bring you out on Coleshill Road opposite the Porsche garage.
The 2 mile add on!
On the way back look out for alley left off Tamworth Road just before the traffic lights.
Turn left down this alley way which leads to Moor Hall Drive. Run all the way down Moor Hall Drive to Little Sutton Lane, turn right here and shortly right again onto Heath Croft Road. Follow Heath Croft Road all the way until it meets Weeford Road, more or less opposite the Mitchell Centre.
11 miles in the bag! All welcome please text 07788 628755 if you would like to join our ‘longer’ run.
