Stafford Half Practise Run

This year it will be held Sunday 23rd February 2020 9 am from White Eagle Club (on the other side of Riverway to the turning to the cricket and hockey club).

They have been very kind to let us use their car park, toilets will be available.

Please park on the left-hand side of the car park, please start on the back rows as they have a Jazz concert at lunchtime.

Just a gentle reminder this is only open to paid members of Stafford Harriers.

Time Table

We will split the group into two.

  1. Those that expect (or aim for) a sub 2 hour race time.
  2. 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.

Water stations

We plan to have two water stations this year.

At approx 3 mile  – Salt Avenue

At approx 6 mile – Birkdale Drive

Route

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.
