It wasn’t the intention to go out to gain an FKT, I was local looking at shoes! Like most runners I’m full of injuries, but the shoe shop had me out running trying new shoes, so it became an ‘I’m sure I could give it a go’

The start in the urban jungle was thankfully not how it continued, it soon opened up into woodland, rocky, tree rooted trails. The ground was muddy & slippy in places which was enjoyable, passing through woodland mountain biking tracks and gentle elevation that doesn’t leave you exhausted, you start to feel the rolling trail and enjoy the trickier sections underfoot.

A good 10k route, if you can look past the start & look forward to the trail ahead.
