Monday night runs

Since we moved the Monday evening runs to Decathlon we have been listening to members feedback, especially given the positive comments about the 6pm Step Up run relocating away from Decathlon to the Peace Pagoda recently

Although Decathlon offered plenty of positives as a meeting point and clearly suited some of our runners we decided that it was not quite right as a long term solution for our flagship evening runs – especially given our desire to have all our Monday evening runs starting in the same place

We have been working hard behind the scenes for some time to secure an alternative meeting point and after looking at various options have secured a car park at the Mercedes-Benz training centre (see map below)

This offers a large number of free parking spaces and is situated close to our spiritual home of Willen Lake

So from Monday 20 February all the Monday evening runs as shown below will be starting from Mercedes

  • 6pm Step Up
  • 7pm Step Up
  • 7pm Social Run
  • 7pm Club Run

All our other weekly runs are unaffected

The address is
Mercedes-Benz Training Centre
Delaware Drive
MK15 8BA

Runners should use the Training Centre entrance and park on the left hand side car park

Please also note that we are not permitted to run on the site (So no jogging round the car park!) and must have vacated the site by 8:30pm when the barrier will come down

Special thanks must also go to Kevin Ferris who has been invaluable in gaining the necessary permissions to use the site
