Handicap Routes

As new routes are run then I hope to add them here to allow runners to check out before the runs and also to help them to be reused in subsequent years. I am measuring these two ways – by running with Android GPS (not brilliantly reliable) and by manually plotting on MapMyRun.com


The future of the towpath is now “up in the air” waiting to see what it will be like when the new road is complete.
