Harvel Round

The Harvel Round:

Wolvie has worked out a 5.4 mile route that we can all run as a sort of age based handicap (look for Wolvie’s email Nov 4th, containing the route). If you cannot locate it or struggle with the technical (.gpx aspects) plse let us know. There are plenty of Garmin.Geeks on hand. See the BUTTON BELOW, which will take you to the route on Plotaroute (you can downlaod the .gpx file, from Plotaroute).

Maybe just let Duracell or Wolvie know when you are attempting it (to avoid congestion) and then go get running! Thereafter upload your ‘effort’ to Strava and there are trophies available…….
