Castle Run A last minute planned run for @b34st being up here from Hull Approximately 135 miles and about 4 hours driving which will leave plenty of time for a food intake. I am planning on Sunday 28th October meeting up in Macdonalds car park at the Metro Center at 9.00am for 9.30 prompt Start Heading West and making for the A68. We then head north for a little while before heading back east for Rothbury, past Chillingham Castle to the A1. Head north towards Belford and then onto the coast to Bamburgh Castle and Seahouse ( about 2pm-ish ) where we will could then have a stop off for Fish 'n' Chips. Then back down the coastal route passing Dunstanburgh Castle, Warkworth Castle and then on to the finish at Newcastle. Later on in the day its back to the Metro Center for the mandatory Krispy Kreme @ 6pm
We are doing the Castle Run again for the 7th April. 138 miles point to point and about 3hrs and 40 mins driving. This time does not including stopping off for breaks and food << CALENDAR LINK >> We will start off at A) McDonalds Metro Centre (meet 9am to leave before 9.30am), aiming for the ol` Military Road and the A68. From the A68 we will come off for Rothbury, some twists and main turns later its a stop off at Fontburn Reservoir. Looking for Rothbury we will head off up the A697 looking for Lilburn, which is many turns and twists (get the theme here) later a turn left at Chillingham Castle then right at Chatton, brief jaunt up the A1, off at Easington, look for Bamburgh Castle for another break. From here its a short squirt of power for lunch at Seahouses making sure you have change for the car park and when we are full of fish, chips, chicken nuggets and curry sauce we will have a leisurely/enjoyable drive back through Embleton, Warkworth, Amble, A1 and back to D) the same start McDonalds for a run Debrief Of course if you cant make this date (which looks to be the best date so far according to the poll) then we will still have other runs to be had through the year. Everyone's input is key to making these events/runs a success To see Octobers Castle run, see below..
