Evening, for those interested I will be doing a measured mile at the entrance to Thorpe Park, namely Century Way.

The streetmap overview is below:-

We will meet at the roundabout by Century Way. The aim is to do a choke out mile.

The aim is to do the measured mile at or around 720pm. If you want to take part, you will need a stopwatch or timer.

9 min / 10 min mile group  – Leave the centre and cross over and go through the snicket onto Pendas Way

Left and up to the Manston pub

At the Manston pub, turn left and head up to the Skyliner

At the Skyliner, turn left and make your way up the Ring Road until Thorpe Park (opposite Sainsburys). Turn left at Thorpe Park and meet me at the roundabout by Century Way. This is about 2 miles

Once the measured mile is done, it will be about 730pm, feel free to do the route you want for the last 4 miles.

I will log the times and we will repeat in a months time.
