CTC 1- 4 hour training run

Most of you know how much I love doing trails, but sometimes we need the longer distance on road to achieve our goals, especially when most of the trails are covered in ice.

This Saturday Jan 28, 2017 we will be doing a 1-4 hour run starting at 7am from Rustic Slice Pizzeria & Gourmet Salads, at 1606 Battler Rd, in Kitchener. Restaurant website: www.rusticslice.ca, 

The restaurant opens at 11 am and they have seating for 35. I am hoping to be there on the hour for those showing up at different times (7. 8, 9 & 10). My pace will be 7:30 per km to get me back on the hour.  

The course is approximately 8 km. Route: Start at Rustic Slice and then turn right on Huron Rd. Follow Huron Rd until you reach Parkvale Dr. Turn right at Parkvale Dr and continue until you reach the top (nice steady 1 km climb). At the end of Parkvale Dr, turn left on Woodbine Ave and shortly after turn right on Seabrook Dr and follow to roundabout. Stay right at the roundabout (Fischer-Hallman Rd) and continue to Bleams Rd, turn right at Bleams Rd, and shortly thereafter, turn right at Washburn Dr. Follow to Trillium Dr and turn right. Continue on Trillium Dr to Strasburg Rd and turn right at (four way intersection). Continue a few hundred meters and turn left on Battler Rd to parking lot at Rustic Slice.

Rustic Slice would like to make your experience more comfortable by permitting runners wishing to indulge in some food or drink in their establishment, to use their washroom after the run, for you to change into dry clothes. I will print the above route info and have copies available on the day of the run.

This is a great opportunity to increase your mileage over the winter months and meet new runners, who are training for trail, ultra trail and road races and socialize in a pleasant atmosphere.
