Saint Cuthbert's Way Ultra - St Cuthbert's Way Recce Part 2 of 3

St Cuthbert's Way from Wooler to Morebattle

Hope your training is going well. A more testing recce run for you this time on the 21st March.We will head from Wooler to Morebattle to continue our recce of St Cuthbert's Way. This part of the course is around 21 miles and is far more challenging than the first section of the Way. This recce is suited to someone who is running at least 30 miles a week in training. This section is a personal favourite of mine and is a great training run, in a remote rural area, that passes from England to Scotland with some fabulous views along the way.

We will splint into several pace groups to cater for all runners not put off by this being a 20 mile run in undulating terrain.

We will park most of the cars in Morebattle before heading to Wooler for the start of the run at 08:00am.

If you would like to go along could you please confirm your attendance via this Facebook event or via an email.
