Start Time
Start: 26ml walkers 08.30. 18ml walkers & all runners 09.30
From Birmingham Moseley RFC; Billesley Common, Yardley Wood Road, Birmingham B13 0HN The full 26ml route includes the Stratford upon Avon Canal, Cole Valley Way, Grand Union Canal, Fazeley Canal, Wolverhampton Main Line and Birmingham-Worcester Canal before returning to Moseley RRFC via the Stratford Canal. It Passes Sarehole Mill (inspiration to Tolkien's Middle Earth), under the dark bowels of 'Spaghetti Junction'; the Birmingham ICC and Brindley Place.
The 18ml route also takes in the Cole Valley Way passing Sarehole Mill, the Grand Union Canal, Fazeley Canal, Birmingham-Worcester Canal and the Stratford Canal.

Both route involves crossing very few roads, no stiles and probably the least ascent and descent you will do this year!!
General Notes
A new date and a new course for this event. However, whilst it is the same as the old course, you're doing it in reverse. 5 Cps on the longer Canter and 3 on the Mini-Canter which will include food and drink - Look out for the Cake Stop and help judge the Canal Canter Cake Competition. Mugs are essential please as cups will not be provided at Cps. There will be hot drinks and a meal at the finish including a vegetarian/vegan option. The bar at the club will also be open. All finishers requiring a cert will receive one
