Motavation 4: Chipping Norton
|Date:||05th Aug 2010|
|Distance:||4 miles 402 yards|
A good turnout from HRR for the 4th race of the Mota-vation series which takes place at Chipping Norton: there were 29 of us.
The race is along three roads to the South East of Chipping Norton, starting and finishing at the Chipping Norton Rugby Club. Although there is a gentle climb in the first mile, the rest of the route is undulating but with a gentle downhill in the third mile.
This year, during the third mile, there were some roadworks on the right hand side of the road with lights controlling the traffic. Before the roadworks runners were to cross from the left to the right hand side, then run to the right of the cones (that were in the middle of the road) and then rejoin the left hand side of the road. This all turned out to be less adventurous than initially broadcasted.
