Routes

The links below shows the routes the club uses for its training runs on Wednesday nights.

Maps of all the routes can be found on the Good Run Guide website.

The winter routes are all on the pavement on well-lit routes around the town. In the summer the lighter evenings mean we can venture out of town into the lanes and footpaths by the river and in the surrounding countryside. We encourage all members to wear a reflective top on our Wednesday night runs.

The winter routes are usually around 6-7 miles, with the summer routes being around 7-8 miles. There are shorter versions of the routes available for those who don’t wish to run so far. There are usually copies of maps and directions available on Wednesdays for those who aren’t sure of the route.

All routes start and finish at the club HQ – Maidstone Hockey Club, Armstrong Road, Maidstone, ME15 6AZ (Google Map)
