Alton Water training run

1 March 2017 - By Brigid Wallen

A few of us are going to Alton Water next Sunday (March 12th) for a long run. For some it will be the opportunity for one last long run before Paris, Manchester or Brighton and for others it’s a chance to run somewhere different, off road and scenic.

Now is also a last chance for the marathon runners to decide which liquid/gel works well for them on a long run – remember that nutrition is as important as the mileage.

If you have never run at Alton Water before, one lap is 7.5 miles around a reservoir. It’s undulating but a very good run and will test your strength.

There is also a nice cafė so a bacon sandwich (or marmalade on toast) is your reward for putting in the miles!! 😀

Suggest a 9am start from the main car-park.

Address is Alton Water Park
Holbrook Road
Ipswich IP9 2RY

Look forward to seeing you
