Hanslope Circular Run with Redway Runners

A new Challenge to have a go at with the Hanslope Circular run

The total route is about twenty miles and is on mixed terrain that is mainly fields and footpaths that in a few places are a bit overgrown.

You’ll see from the map that the route is very close in both directions just below Hanslope Park which we used as a cross over point to make it into a two day walk:-

 

Day 1

12 miles and covers the northern part starting and finishing in the same place, we met in Castlethorpe village centre at a closed down pub:-

The Carrington Arms, South Street, Castlethorpe MK19 7EL where there is free parking.

This route is on Run Go app, search groups and ‘Redway Runners’ at:

Day 2

8 miles covers the southern part starting and finishing in the same place, we met at:-

The Black Horse, Great Linford MK14 5AJ

This route is on Run Go app, search groups and ‘Redway Runners’ at:

Getting back to running – next steps

In our last update, we let you know that we had received updated England Athletics guidance and we were waiting further clarification, we are pleased to confirm that we have now received this and following a successful test over the weekend on the new guidance we are increasing the numbers that can attend club runs up to 12 runners as a first step, this will increase for the booked runs from the 1 August 2020. We could go further but feel at this stage this is a wise first step.

In order to make this change we have updated the club COVID risk assessment and to confirm Michelle GB is the clubs COVID officer, runners are still required to social distance and stick to the runners COVID guidelines that are below and runs will be in COVID secure environments
We will be continuing with the current process for booking runs, via events on your Redway Runners Love Admin account (with the exception of Move Up to Marathon group and the Under 18s)

Please ensure that your contact details are up to date on your Redway Runners Love Admin account in case it needs to be used for Test and Trace

England Athletics Guidance Update

Following the latest updated guidance from England Athletics the steering group to get the club back up to operations met again on Saturday 18 July 2020 (via Zoom) and have decided that at this stage will not make changes to how club runs currently operate until we get further clarification from England Athletics.

The meeting agreed in principle a number of ways forward on a number of scenarios and updated the clubs Covid risk assessment, which you can see click here (opens pdf)

Since we started with limited runs about 6 weeks ago with the booking process we have held about 100 runs, although this gives us capacity for 600 runners, we still have demand for more opportunities to run, so if you feel you could lead runs for the club, please get in touch with Martin or Michelle GB and if you meet the criteria then we can progress. Michelle GB is the clubs Covid-19 Officer (as well as run lead co-ordinator) please contact her or Martin for further information.
