Preparations for Stafford Half — UPDATED

So it is nearly time for our last practise run for Stafford Half. The list of people that has booked is unusually short in the past we have had 30 runners plus.


We will split the group into two.

  • Those that expect (or aim for) a sub 2 hour race time.
  • A group that will be over 2 hours.

The slower group will have the option of ending at 7.5 miles by returning from Birkdale Drive.

Meet at the Cricket club for 9am — a quick safety briefing, a photo and then off 9:15am.

We are planning to have 3 water stations

  • End of Salt Avenue – about 3.3 miles
  • Birkdale Drive – about 6.2 miles
  • Just before the Stone roundabout – about 9.5 miles



As we are starting from the Cricket club we will be missing off the Meadows loop.
We will be using the Two Waters Way (the new bridge) rather the dangerous Baswich Lane.
After the park we will head straight back rather than a finishing lap of the town.
