About this run route

Start / Finish

By green Muster Sign outside AQUA EAST. 100 metre mark

This is an excellent route for beginners since the route is very easy to follow, consisting of a loop up and down the paved walkway that runs along the canal. There is also flexibility regarding length of run with  2 routes of 500m and 1km. The whole loop in total is 1,500m so you runners can do this twice for the full 3K. The walkway is wide, flat and has no impediments to pushchairs/wheelchairs. There are benches along the walkway and toilets/refreshment areas inside the university itself. The route is well away from traffic and is peaceful with great views over the canal.

Please note:

The layout and usage of the marked 3-2-1 running routes is the responsibility of the local authority or further education establishment that purchases the route marking signs and usual health and safety and duty of care considerations should be followed in laying out open, even-surfaced, easy-to-follow, safe, accurate, well lit routes at all times - with the landowner’s permission. RunTogether will not provide materials with which to attach the markers.
