Meeting points

We will meet in the Sandy Lane car park at Rowney Warren Wood.

You will also be emailed meeting point details prior to the run.

You can check your route to the meeting point using the links below.

There is no cafe at Rowney Warren Wood 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.
