The Inaugural Channels 5k Running Route is now officially launched! Take a look a the detailed Route Guide (pdf) and give it a go.
It’s not a (virtual) race however if you use any of the well known fitness apps, you can track your progress over time. The route is relatively straight forward with a mix of tarmac and gravel paths and there are plenty of benches along the way if you need a rest.
Let’s see how many people we can get to complete it (either running or walking) and don’t forget we have a Channels Residents Runners Facebook Group and Strava Club if you want to get involved and share experiences etc.
We know there is only about 200m of the route that is actually within the Channels boundary however it starts and ends here so that’s what counts!
