The route varies but the last one I witnessed: It's on the other side of the road from the Base (over the foobridge)and the warm-up is in the sports field pavilion car-park.

The squad run then starts on the lane outside all the way up to a "T" junction which you then do a U-turn and back down the lane to a "Y" junction on the left, down the tarmac-ed lane to a circular turning area where it meets a farm track (the 1.5 mile point). The squad reform then it's a free-run back, right at the "Y" junction up to the "T" junction, U turn and back to the start/finish line adjacent to the car-park.

Think that's it, but I'm an old man, my mind is weak.... and I'm used to giving direction by names of pubs and there isn't any on the route.

Pace Your Self

I recall the time I did the 3 miler on my PRMC, although it as called PRC back then.

We ran the first half together and it was an individual effort on the way back. However, I also remember that most people started the run back by sprinting and most of them ran out of steam well before the end. So remember to build up your pace and keep it going so that you have a fair amount left in the tank for your home burst.

Cheers

Steve

It may turn out to be a slight advantage *cough*, but fortunately I live near Exeter for starters, work near Exmouth, and work with a guy who spent ten years in the RM and is *text deleted* do a few runs with me over Woodbury Common pointing out various routes/spots for exercise etc. etc.

Obv. not *text deleted* be able to 'access all areas' as it were, but still I reckon some training on the appropriate ground may be helpful. A lucky break I guess!
