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
Ipswich IP9 2RY
Look forward to seeing you
