Another amazing turnout for week 2 of the Couch to 5k course as we headed out to run/walk circuits of Charnwood Water. Well done all – there was plenty of determination and enthusiasm – hills were conquered and no-one fell into the drink!
Week 3 will see a change of venue as nights are drawing in – we will meet at Jubilee Park, Buckingham Drive, Thorpe Acre, Loughborough LE11 4TE (next to the bus stop), and will be running on well lit footpaths and roads (see map below). There is plenty of parking available on Buckingham Drive and surrounding streets, but please park with consideration for local residents and car share where possible. Additional car parking at Morrison’s Supermarket/Gorse Covert Community Centre LE11 5RX (see map). It is a 2 minute walk from here – turn right at the back of the car park onto Blackbrook Way, turn left onto the footbridge over the brook, then walk straight ahead over Jubilee Park.
Once again, you’ll be supported by our run leaders Sharon, Lee and Kim and our brilliant Poplar Running Club volunteers.
Good luck with the ‘homework’ and we look forward to seeing you on 28th September!
