This route begins at Kwik Fit in Newport Pagnell and will see you pass through Tongwell Lake, Tongwell Lane, and Giffard Park, finally finishing with just over a 1km stretch along the Nobby Railway walk back in Newport Pagnell. With just a small hill as you enter Tongwell, this is definitely a PB course!
This route starts and finishes at the top of Newlands Farm and near the carpark at the end of Livingstone Drive (David Lloyds gym). The first 5K is nice and flat running along the wonderful paths along the Grand Union Canal. The second 5K will see you climb up towards the viewing area at the top of Campbell Park. With every up-hill there is a wonderful down-hill, don’t jet off too fast and be sure to leave enough for the finish!
This route starts on the edge of the lovely Linford Wood and heads in and around the wonderful paths before heading down along the western edge towards the MK Athletic club track at Stantonbury. You’ll then head up back to Linford Wood finishing around 500 metres from the start.
This routes starts and finishes just off Merlewood Drive to the south of Shenley Wood, a more challenging route around the paths, redways and trails around the west side of MK. Heading West from Shenley Wood it joins the North Bucks Way (NBW) heading North behind the prison (hence the name)! After approximately a mile on the NBW you then take to the horse trails around Grange Farm. After that it’s a nice run around the edge of Shenley Wood back to the finish.
Another gem of a route starting and finishing opposite the main entrance of the National Bowl. The route starts by heading around the Teardrop Lakes (again hence the route name!) then heading off along Emerson Valley, a fairly flat but stunning route,a PB course once again!
Stony Stratford’s name originated from the old ford that joined the two Stratfords (Old and Stony) hence the name for this event. The start and finish is south of the bridge over the Great Ouse, with the start heading around the beautiful riverside park and some of the quieter streets around Stony Stratford. You’ll then return back to the riverside park before crossing the bridge and heading across the fields towards Deanshanger. After a very short section running on the quiet lane (please take care) you’ll join the redway taking you into Old Stratford before turning back down to the finish in Stony Stratford.
