    Leader: Barry Birch
    Meet at Shobnall Reception for a 7:15pm departure. We will do a 1.4 mile warm up run to Forest Edge Way. If you can’t make it to Shobnall for 7:15 go directly to Forest Edge Way; we’ll probably get there at 7:30 but it won’t matter if you’re a little late.
    Forest Edge Way is a loop of 0.35 miles having an elevation gain of 22 feet for the first half of the lap, so the intervals will have a slight uphill and downhill. The course is in a residential area, crosses no roads, has good street lighting and has little traffic.
    It’ll be 2 sets of 5 x 2 minute efforts with 1 minute recovery between each; 5 minute break between sets.

    The 10km course is through the fields of the Anker Valley. It consists of tracks, concrete paths, grass, fields and a short section of tarmac.
