Tuesday 23rd – Measured Mile


Something a little different for the last Tuesday before Christmas; bring a watch and test yourself over a measure mile!

Mile will be within Thorpe Park, starting on Century Way near the entrance to Thorpe Park Hotel; head down to the roundabout at the bottom of Century Way then back up to near the crossing. Start/finish will be marked with lights.

Split into three groups so we all aim to arrive at roughly the same time.

Long term aim is to repeat this near Easter so keep a record of your time and see how you improve.

Three routes to/from Thorpe Park (run back in reverse!)

Short route:

2 Miles – Aim for sub 12min/miles – Approx 24 Mins

Out of John Smeaton, through ginnel opposite on to Penda’s Way, turn right at the end, then left opposite the Barnbow Pub up Austhorpe Road and continue up to Skyliner then turn right and run all the way to Thorpe Park.

Middle route:

2.5 Miles – Aim for sub 10min/miles – Approx 25 Mins

Out of John Smeaton, turn left and up to Sandlers Way (Longs of Leeds) turn right, then right at Manston Lane, then left opposite the Barnbow Pub up Austhorpe Road – remainder as short route.

Long route:                                                                                                                         

3.2 Miles – Aim for sub 8min/miles – Approx 25 Mins

Out of John Smeaton, turn left and up to Sandlers Way (Longs of Leeds) turn right, then right at Manston Lane continuing straight along where it becomes Austhorpe Lane (past the park and Wilson’s) to ring road, turn left. Cross the road when you can, the fork off to the right up Hollyshaw Lane (just past paws for thought), all the way up to the Brown Cow, then turn left and continue until you get back to the Skyliner, turn right and continue on to Thorpe Park.
