Club night at Castlethorpe - Thursday 29 July

Organiser: Dorien James

In preparation for the Scottish Six Three Days, a short hill-training session on the Castle Mound.

Wear full leg cover (probably gaiters too), shoes suitable for steep grassy slopes, and if possible bring your most serious dibber. The full course requires 40 punches plus start and finish.

Park in front of the Village Hall in Castlethorpe (MK19 7EW), in front of the abandoned pub opposite, or safely nearby. Take the footpath to the right of the Village Hall into the Castle Field. When you reach Norman (you'll know him when you see him), turn right and climb the hill (for the first of many times) to reach the start. (What3words sprawls.irritated.flops. It's also the finish.)

Start between 19:10 and 19:30. It's a 30-minute Score course of butterfly loops, remarkably similar to the event that we ran in 2018. To replicate Scottish hill conditions, we have arranged for fairly long grass. There are also clumps of thistles and nettles, although it should be possible to avoid these.

Please let me know if you're coming (smoc@dorien.me.uk) so I can get map numbers right.
