The Stag Course
The course consists of three laps of approximately 0.8 miles with final finishing straight through the centre of Parson’s Close Park.
The route starts at the bottom of Parsons Close Recreation Ground, towards the alley that heads out to Grovebury Road. Runners run south along the alleyway and at the end turn left onto Grovebury Road. Keep on the left-hand side and continue on to Lake Street. Here there is one residential road to cross (with great care please). At the junction with the The Sun Inn on the corner, turn left into Grove Road. Continue straight on and re-enter the park, before turning left to rejoin the alleyway and start lap 2. It is a 3 lap race but on the final lap, immediately upon re-entering the park there is a path leading off diagonally off through the middle of the park, take this and we finish with a sprint up the hill.
