There will be 4.5, 6.0, 9.6 and 11.2 mile routes for walkers and runners across open undulating North Chiltern countryside which will no doubt be muddy but sun and 10 degrees is forecast, it will not be like the photo when we ran this course in January 2013 - you may recognise a couple of the runners still in the club!
In the light of us moving into Tier 3 this weekend, we cannot meet at the pub anymore. So near the Memorial Hall or park along the road (not near the church ) would be best,
Runners should be in groups of 6 or less and no socialising should be had before or after the run please.

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.
