Wednesday Feb 12th 2020 - Club Night - Penrith Parlauf

Meet at Penrith Rugby Club 6:45pm for prompt 7pm start. Don't forget reflective hi-viz attire please - headtorches etc optional.

What is the Route?..
The ER webpage has a map on it – click on ‘This Week, go to the map box at the bottom right and tick the Parlauf box…an expandable map box will appear. If for some reason you can't see the map, I am hoping to bring printed copies on the night of the run.

Basically, it's a loop round Penrith, over which teams of two will compete. Hopefully, everyone will join in with the spirit of the event. Yes it will be competitive, but not at the expense of being enjoyable.

How does it work? We will start/finish at the bottom of Wordsworth Street at the Methodist Church, on Drovers Lane. But first, before we leave the RC, we will need to sort the runners into teams of two - pairing fastest with slowest, 2nd fastest with 2nd slowest, etc. Nothing too scientific, but the idea behind this is to try to make each pairing as close to equal in average speed as possible. All starting at the same time, one half of each team runs the course in opposite directions. When the two runners from each pair meet, somewhere on the far side of the course, each will turn round and run back the way they came. The winning team is the first one with BOTH runners back at the start/finish. The TOTAL route length is around 5.4miles, so the 'fastest' runners may cover around 6 miles (as they will run more than half the route), while their 'slower' partners will run maybe around 4.5miles.

Route (Clockwise).

Start - foot of Wordsworth St on Drovers Lane at Penrith Methodist Church
Go South along Drovers Lane/Meeting House Lane/Folly Lane
At far end of Folly Lane turn sharp right onto Carleton Road
At end (traffic lights), turn sharp left onto Bridge Lane and think about crossing onto RHS
At next junction (traffic lights), turn right and run up the road between Penrith Leisure Centre(on your right) and UCC (on your left) towards Wetheriggs Estate (watch for speed humps)
Through the white metal gate, Turn right onto Wetheriggs Lane/Castle Hill Lane/West Lane, past back of Sainsburys, then past the Dolly Tub launderette.
Bear Left into Great Dockray
Left again onto Castlegate, uphill
Bear left at the top, past the Station Hotel, onto Ullswater Road
Along Ullswater Road, cross onto right hand side when safe to do so
Past Cranstons, bear right at roundabout, past Go Outdoors / Atkinsons, along pavement into Penrith Industrial Estate.
Follow Haweswater Road parallel with M6, under railway, towards Magnet
APPROX HALF-WAY POINT -Right into Mardale Road before Magnet, anticlockwise around the Magnet 'loop'
Right again back onto Haweswater Road, past Arnold Clark until T junction (new roundabout) is reached
Turn right onto the Greystoke Road, towards Castletown & Penrith town centre
Follow this road through Castletown until after crossing the Castletown railway bridge, then
Turn left (so that Morrisons is directly on your right) down Brunswick Road (do NOT cut across Booths carpark)
Immediately past Booths, turn left along Brunswick Terrace leading into top of Brunswick Square
Turn right, down Brunswick Square
At the bottom, turn left up Scotland Road, past chippy etc..
Turn right to climb up Salkeld Road, towards Beacon Edge
Along Beacon Edge, past top of Graham Street, then
Turn right down steps (take care) and into Croft Avenue.
Down Croft Avenue to FINISH at the bottom.

Those running anticlockwise obviously run this route in reverse.

I think the route is street-lit all the way, but as ever, wear reflective hi-viz and always be aware of traffic and non-runners (it's not their fault). If it goes according to plan, most runners should meet their respective partners somewhere in or around Penrith Industrial Estate, at which point each runner turns & retraces his/her steps back to the start/finish.

Hopefully there’ll be a few volunteer marshals out on the course but we can’t guarantee this on this night.

Our winter Wednesday club nights are meant for ALL members - we will have a pace/ability group to suit everyone, and running with usually means you get more out (because you put more in) to the training session. And the sessions themselves are flexible enough that you can do as much as you feel capable of on the night.

A reminder to members who are injured at present (there are always too many of those) of our standing invitation to the bar afterwards - even if you can't run just now, you may find it useful to help keep in touch. We all know how frustrating it is to be crocked - at least we can offer some words of encouragement and sympathy which will, certainly, help your recovery :-)
