.......Datchet Dashers Training Run Invitation - I know some of you ran this last year and said it was very well organised. The Dashers have very kindly invited us again.
Datchet Dashers are holding their annual 20 mile marathon training run on Sunday March 9th 2014. This is a supported run that we put on for our members, who are training for a spring marathon, but members of other local clubs are also very welcome to come along, and we usually have 60 – 70 runners of all standards. The run starts at 9am from our club house in Home Park in Windsor, and there is no charge – runners simply have to be at our club house, signed in and ready to go at 9am. There are changing and toilet facilities at the club house (no showers), plus plenty of free car parking.
The route is basically from Windsor to Virginia Water via Datchet & Old Windsor, a lap around Virginia Water, and then back to Windsor. The entire route is on pavements, quiet country lanes or roads & footpaths in Windsor Great Park, and it will be marshalled at all key turning points with several bikes out on course as well. There are also 4 drink stations around the route. It is not a difficult route, but it is not flat – there are significant climbs at around 4.5 & 8 miles, and descents at around 10 & 15 miles, with some minor undulations between these points. The first 4.5 and last 4.5 miles are flat however.
Details of how to find our club house are here: http://datchetdashers.com/contacts/
