The Routes

Hill_Fort_4K_icon

Hill Fort 4K

Hunsbury Hill

Creating these routes in Northampton has been a real pleasure and although I knew about the Hunsbury railway, I never knew about the iron age hill fort there. The route starts near the Drovers return on the other side of Hunsbury Hill drive, where the route winds itself through the estate down a scenic track before returning along another lovely path backup to the park. The route then basically follows the edge of the park before finishing at the crossing gates at the Ironstone rail.

Watchtower 11K

Sixfields Stadium

A cracking route that is more or less very flat, and apart from the start lane a beautiful route around the lakes, canals and parklands that make up the Upton Park. Wondering about the name? The Express tower watches your every move!!

Little_Norway_5k_Icon

Little Norway 5K

Great Houghton

What a lovely surprise this route is, when you drop down to the start you find a lovely disused railway converted to a cracking path. At the end of the line used to be a railway cottage called Little Norway, hence the route name; alas this cottage has now been replaced with the units at Brackmills. Even when you are near the factory units the route is amazing with lakes, trees, fantastic paths….a real gem.

Rapid_Nene_5k_Icon

Rapid Nene 5K

Just off Bedford road

The route is very flat on tracks and paths around the Nene River. You will have to pinch yourself to realise you are in the middle of Northampton. The name comes from the finish location which is next to the Rapids at the water sport centre. Take note this route can flood so check the Facebook group for updates.

Pitsford_Creek_10k_Icon

Pitsford Creek 10K

Brixworth Country Park

Although slightly out of Northampton it is definitely worth that little drive out of town for what is a fast, easy to navigate and simply gorgeous route around this large reservoir. There are plenty of things to do so why not make it a family affair.

The_Kings_7k_icon-2

The Kings 7K

Kingsthorpe

A fantastic route with plenty of variety and lovely scenery, the start following the edges of farmers fields before heading down the Darlington brook. Then towards Harleston Firs, a gorgeous section of wooded paths takes you to the varied paths and tracks of the Brampton way, taking you back to the car park at the Kings!
