Recce Runs

Recce Runs are always worth doing.
They can save you time as you will not be continually checking your map and in doing so take away any uncertainty you may have regarding route choice. It is especially worth doing on those areas that you have spotted on the map that could definitely be a little tricky.

With this in mind for the DIG Deep Trail Weekend we have organised a number of Sunday Recce Runs to help make things a little easier come race day.
All we ask is that you can cover the distance described and you do not have to have entered any of the races to come along. Pace will be comfortable and we never leave any one behind, so why not come along for a thoroughly enjoyable morning of running, chat and no doubt a little banter. Cost is £2pp.
