ERN Routes

Below you will find links to routes that ERN has used for training such as Sunday Runs, Summer Series Runs and Mid-Week Runs. There are also links to a selection of race routes. These may be of use to you for planning your own runs, possibly combining some, or parts of some together. Doing them back-to-front gives you a completely different perspective. Most are based on Sports Centres or the like where there are access to showers etc although please note that if you are not an EL member, a charge will apply. Others are based on easily accessed known locations such as the Dean Gallery (which has an excellent cafe!). Enjoy.
