Unfortunately, the latest Covid restrictions mean the Club has to suspend the Sunday runs for senior members until effectively Sunday 6th December.
However, all is not lost as the Club now has a Library of trail runs on the web site - see Route Maps button at the top of the Home page.
Here you will find 19 greatest hits from Hervines Park, Amersham, the Moor, Chesham and Pub/ trail blazers.
Routes can be downloaded either in PDF format for fans of paper or Formats compatible with wearable tech.
Generally, the routes include distances up to circa 10 miles but with shorter options of about 7/8 miles.
Although designed to have fixed start points the routes can, of course be joined and finished at any point and with an element of map reading prowess tailored to any length to suit.
Why not try running the routes in reverse direction? It is surprising how different the countryside looks approached from different angles.
With 38 options, even without personalisation, there should be sufficient choice to carry us over the next month.
Do you a favourite route to share with the Club? They do not have to follow the current pattern of start/ finish, distance or terrain - road runs are as welcome. Raw details can be converted for uploading to the library.
Start at The Green Dragon, High Street, Flaunden, HP3 0PP, Park near the pub, not sure how much parking at the pub itself.
Start time 10am
10.7, 7.1, 5.1 mile routes

Leaving at 9.30 am the circular routes go out towards Kingshill via Little Missenden and then back via Holmer Green. There are two mapped options of &.8 and 10.0 miles but as will be seen from the maps this is an area with numerous options to tailor the length of run to suit.

Pub Run on Sunday 4 October 2020 at Hedgerley,meeting at 9.45am (start at the White Horse Pub, Village Lane, SL2 3UY park in the lane south of the pub).
Route 1: 4.75 miles
Route 2: 7.1 miles
Route 3: 10.0 miles
Route 4: 11.9 miles (495' climb)
We used this venue in 2018 but it is back to substitute for an originally planned route from Flaunden which will now be used in November.
The outing will give you an opportunity to enjoy the open country and beautiful woods in South Bucks, whilst going through the North end of the famous Burnham Beeches Nature Reserve. The routes are comparatively flat with less than 500’ climb on the longest route.
This location has been chosen as the White Horse, an historic village pub, is one the favourite locations for our regular participants, with it serving excellent sandwiches and a wide range of beers straight from barrels behind the bar; these can be partaken of inside the pub or on the lawns at the back. I have a table for six reserved out the back and we can get another if needed, which I hope we do! They are expecting us about 12.15.
Please adhere to Covid-19 guidelines and social distancing when running in groups & respect other footpath users.

There would normally be no Trailblazers in September and we would all be enjoying the Shardeloes 10k. However since this could not be planned due to Covid-19 restrictions we have the opportunity of returning to Great Hampden again for an energetic scenic run.
This venue is about twenty minutes drive from Chesham, on the top of the Chilterns in peaceful rural country with spectacular views and hills! The courses follow part of the Ridgeway, with all the runs climbing Pulpit and Whiteleaf Hills but not Coombe Hill.
These are more testing courses than recent Trailblazers and the longest one should be undertaken with some caution.
There is the option of meeting afterwards for drinks at the Hampden Arms, a small country pub, nice to sit outside in good weather.
Route 1 (walk): 5.5 miles
Route 2: 8.1 miles
Route 3: 10 miles
Route 4: 11.5 miles (1594' climb)
We are back at Amersham for this Sunday’s social run for the Seniors.
