Stafford Half 2017 Practise Run

The information below only relates to the Harriers practice run on 26th Feb 2017.

It does not represent information about the actual race or the actual race route.

This run is open only to paid members of Stafford Harriers. 

Meet at the Stafford Cricket and Hockey Club at 8.45am for briefing, photo and a prompt start at 9am.

There will be two groups.

  • People targeting less than 2 hours for the race.
  • Everyone else. Option (depending upon demand) at 6.6 Mile to return back to the club making a 7.7 mile run.

As with all club runs mustering is compulsory. The group leaders will control how often the muster points are set.

Beware the most dangerous section is the end of Baswich Lanerun single file on the right hand side of the road.

Water will be provided at

3.3 Mile (end Salt Lane)

6.6 Mile (Birkdale Drive – Kingstone Hill)

10 Mile Near Stone Round about Parkside Ave  (slower group only)

Please remember no matter what the air temperature is you will get hot running. Think to your last club run to give you guidance what to ware. If you have new kit it is important that you test it on multiple training runs before Race Day.
