Summer Off-Road Routes

During the summer, Tuesday evening training runs are often through countryside, starting and finishing at the Lord Butler Leisure Centre.

While we do try and have run leaders on off-road runs, and ask runners to keep an eye out for each other, you can also look into at using your watch or phone to help navigate.

Shooting Chair Route

While running this route, you’ll probably wonder where the shooting chair is? Well, it used to be at about 7.7km, but has now gone, though the route name remains.

Distance: 7.5 miles or 12 km.

Extended Debden Circuit

If daylight permits, we run past Debden to get in one additional hill. It’s worth the extra effort for the views at the trig point around 7.3km.

Distance: 8.6 miles or 13.9km.
