Stunning Setting and fast, flat running!

Many of us may have enjoyed a stroll round the scenic lake with a family or friend and enjoyed the flat surfaces, easy walking and views it offers.  So when it came to hosting a 5k with a memorable route I looked no further than Hollingworth Lake...

Route details

Route Description: The New route starts from the Rugby Club Car Park and goes down hill on Rake Wood Road. This then flattens out for probably the fastest first mile in a 5k. It’s a very smooth road surface and has little traffic.  When you hit the Wine Press Restaurant you turn left on the road following the wall on Lake Bank Road. Then passing the Rowing club entrance on the path you turn into the Lake path.  Here you do a full circuit of the lake, the road is a combination of compacted path and tarmac and is very good running surface.  Eventually you will come out of the path at the exit point (you actually passed this at the start). The small hill you came down at the beginning of the race is your climb to finish.  The Finish is in the Car Park of the Club.  It’s a very flat, fast and virtual traffic free course.  Certainly one for a PB ! We hope you enjoy it.
