Hengistbury Head Hustle

19/08/2018 8:40 am

Hengistbury Head Hustle – August 2018


After the success of the last long run from Hengistbury in February, we are arranging a repeat on Sunday 19th August 2018. Again our coach will leave Broadstone at 8:40 am. It will drop off runners at Hengistbury Head and Tesco’s Castle Lane Bournemouth.   The distances will be around 19, 14 and 11 miles.  We hope to use the Stour Valley Way to the Wimborne area, then the Castleman trailway to Broadstone. Maps will be available and the route will be marked with road paint on the day.

The running surface is mostly road or compacted hard-core.  Ideal training for a  late Autumn  Marathon. The cost will again be £5.50 to include coffee at Broadstone on your return. Information will be placed on the club website and Facebook when we have set this up. Any questions please contact MikeTowner or Sarah Swift

Please note that while Poole Runners are providing the transport and route suggestions, the run itself is not an organised event and is therefore not marshalled, and you are running entirely at your own risk. Entry confirms acknowledgement of this information.
