About the event
This trail run has plenty of variety - completely flat the first section, starting along the quiet tree-lined banks of the Grand Union Canal, then past 'twitchers with bins' (aka birdwatchers with binoculars) beside nature reserves-cum-reservoirs. Soon we hit the public footpath passing alongside a MOD airfield with gliders pulled by tugs or whipped into the air by a whirling wheel on a stationary lorry. For the last 3km the land changes completely, as you make your way up into a popular part of Wendover Woods, with its "Go Ape" adventure centre, and exercise areas, nearly to the highest point in the Chilterns, and then descend steeply into Wendover.
As always don't forget to bring appropriate clothing and footwear, and check the weather before you leave the house to ensure you are prepared for all eventualities. A vest/pack might be useful to carry water and snacks too.
We will meet at Euston Train station at 09:00am on Sunday 12th November catching the 09:25am train. Please remember to buy your train tickets before coming. For this adventure trail run, you will need to purchase two singles, one from Euston to Tring, and the other Wendover to Euston.
