This week we are going to do our left hand circuit of Stamford - with some changes :
In line with the big push on safety and consideration I have revised this set of of routes so that, as far as possible, groups are running on different streets or on different sides of the same street. Some sections are quite different, some are the same as they were before.
There are still some places where groups will run together. Where there is group overtaking please remember that it is the overtaking runners responsibility to keep clear, but helpful if the slower runners keep to one side.
All 4 stops should work out the same for everyone - to let you switch groups at any stop if you want to go faster or slower than you were.
