HENGISTBURY HEAD RUN  SUNDAY 18th FEB

CHANGE OF ROUTE

The “Stour Valley Way” route was checked last week-end and was fine. However due to the persistent rain on Wednesday part of the riverside route is currently flooded.   Despite the forecast of good weather for the next two day we cannot guarantee that the route will be in “good order” by Sunday.

THEREFORE

It’s been decided to revert to using last year’s promenade route.    The will now be a drinks /aid point at Shore road.  The mix of distance are much the same. The coaches will still leave The Junction at 8:40am and bacon rolls still available for all finishers.

Maps can be found below, click the blue box, and written details will be added shortly.   A number of hard copies will be available on the coach.   However feel free to download your own personal copy
