As we hopefully have some respite from the monsoon season on Sunday the run for the Seniors is from the car park at Hervines Park Amersham HP6 5HU.
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.
The maps are in the Route Maps Library on the web site under reference A1, with PDF and Downloadable formats. Please print/download a route to suit you .
In the continued shortage of competition what better way to spent Sunday morning with club mates.

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.

Hampden Common 9.45am Park along lane next to cricket field just South of the Hampden Arms, HP16 9RQ
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.
Starting from the car park at Hervines Park (HP6 5HU) at 9.30 am .
The options are 7.4 and 10.3 miles taking in circular routes out to Penn and back via Coleshill. Two pdf’s of the routes , one on a single sheet and the other on two sheets to a larger scale are on the web site.
The routes are quite twisty in places and the larger scale is slightly easier to follow. Please print a copy in your preferred format for use on the day.
For those wishing to use mobile devices to download the routes please note these routes are the same as A7 in the Runs library but in reverse !
With the continued lack of events these runs are a good way of do a decent length run in company.
