This is the 5th run in a series of six canicross runs across January-March.
Maybe the most eye-catching route in the series as we head Barton Spings and Pegsdon Hills.
The woodland, streams and chalk grasslands are home to many species of plants and animals rarely spotted in the rest of the region, so keep your eyes peeled on this excellent run.

Itinerary & meeting points
Post run refreshments
There is no cafe at here so there will be treats provided by The Green Foodies Kitchen at the finish.
If we can reserve an area we will, however we don’t formally book a table as this often requires a deposit/exact numbers. If the chosen pub/cafe is full or busy we will try somewhere else.
