Cross Country Familiarisation & Training – Sunday 30/10 Rivenhall
27 October 2022 - By David Jobling
Our location this Sunday for cross country familiarisation & training is Rivenhall – a short run also from Witham & Kelvedon areas for any athletes looking to tie it in with a longer run.
We’ll be running a completely off road and undulating loop between Rivenhall & Kelvedon, an area where there are many tracks, footpaths & bridleways.
At the time of writing and unless there’s any unexpected change in the weather, the ground around there is fairly dry and firm so footwear options – probably in choice order – would be light trail/trail shoes, most likely road shoes will be fine too and the spikes option may be short ones.
Please see meeting point as indicated on map above.
It’s the lay-by (the one with bottle bank) at junction Rickstones Rd/Oak Rd/Church Rd Rivenhall.
Post Code: CM8 3PQ (for sat nav, will get you to within eyeshot and 100 yds)
What Three Words: mincing.overheard.digress
Sufficient parking usually for up to 10/12 cars in lay-by
Further free parking just up Church Rd, P sign into The Albert Moss Playing Field – What Three Words: workbench.twig.tubes & postcode CM8 3PQ
Like other similar sessions, there will be some structure in that we’ll jog over to our starting point, we’ll do some warm ups & drills and then athletes will be able to run at a pace entirely of their choice in and around the cross country loop of ups, downs, flats and even a ditch (dry & no water feature) – either as 2 or 3 individual laps with breaks in between perhaps or even 2 or 3 continuous laps – the loop is just a smidgeon over 1 mile so 3 laps will give you a 5k run out + warm up & jog back.
Sign up is below please. Beth, Graham and I look forward to meeting up with everyone on Sunday.
