Whilst the overriding objective is to avoid extensive and deep mud, my perception is that people prefer getting wet feet to road running, so the plan this Saturday is to run up the Downs Link to Southwater Country Park and back, which is 15 miles. There are obvious shorter options, but it’s worth doing the whole route, if possible, particularly as the pace will be steady. There won’t be a geat deal of mud, but it may be advisable to wear waterproof socks!

Unfortunately there are a limited number of dry routes that don’t involve longish stretches of road running. A few of these include Lock Farm and this is the basic one of 9.5 miles that should enable us to keep our feet dry until the path linking Honeybridge and Spithandle Lanes and also avoids a certain bridge. There may also be some Joggers who have never run down Spithandle, which everyone should do at least once and some of us do on a fairly regular basis!
This is the suggested route on Boxing Day. It’s about 10 miles, starting from HLC at 9am and, hopefully, avoiding any lengthy stretches of mud and also, of course, Eatons Bridge.
Have a great day tomorrow, everyone, whether you are running or not.
