stile near cropston reservoir

Stay Healthy. Keep Safe.

A country run with empty areas – make sure you have your phone.

A VERY steep road down to the reservoir.

This route runs through some very shaded areas, these present a particular hazard. Here is a picture taken on the route a few days after the race.

The country code tells you to walk / run on the outside of the bend. Exactly where the dark car has made its line. Look ahead you can see a red car (mine) in a shaft of sunlight. I parked there deliberately in the sun so oncoming motorists had a chance to see it.

My car was left in the same place, but I changed where I took the picture from.

Now, assuming you are running where my car is and the oncoming driver is wearing non polarising sunglasses. That would be quite a few of them.

These pictures suggest that if ou’re running on these roads, something brighter than bright red is probably a good idea.

there ae footpaths from the Woodhouse Eaves junction to the end of Swithland Reservoir. These are worth using.
