The training runs all start from Broomfield leisure center and take in the environ of Stockton Heath, Grappenall, Thelwell, Appleton, Warrington center, as far west as Runcorn. The summer routes try and use as many off-road paths as possible like the Trans-Pennine Trail and the Bridgewater Canal. The winter routes stick to the road because of safety concerns about running in the dark.
- Canal & Keckwick Hill (approx.10 miles),
- Up the Hill to Hatton (approx.10 miles) ,
- Footpaths around Grappenhall (approx. 8.3 miles),
- Canal & Transpennine (approx. 9.5 miles) ,
- The Dingles (max. 10.2 miles) ,
There are three routes that we use over the winter period, all are based around the town and benefit from street lighting.
Members are advised to wear high visibility/reflective clothing during winter months for their own safety.
