Primrose Hill is a mere 5 minute jog from our LGN 1km loop, how about warming down with a view to explaining the benefits of training at lactic threshold to Sienna and chums?
LGN 1km loops have been located and measured at several key points around London for use primarily by LGN Run Clubs http://www.lgnwellbeing.com/
These LGN 1km loops serve several key purposes:
- Provide comparable LGN standard course for all our Run Clubs
- Via monthly time trial assist with tangible fitness progress
- Offer guide to tempo for people planning fun runs or PB races
- Building confidence for those aiming for initial 5km or 10km
- Help fan the flames of Inter LGN Run Club banter
Let us assure you we at LGN take measuring very seriously, oh yes
While we at LGN embrace technology with a cuddly bear lost & found like grip, and indeed for identifying our LGN 1km loops we used internet mapping to find best routes with same start / finish area, however when it came to accurate measurement we laughed in the face of GPS and used trusted measuring techniques for inch perfect accuracy, thus while you will have a route map to provide, rest easy knowing we walked every single 1km loop with a manual measuring wheel to make sure each one LGN 1km loop is indeed exactly 1km.
However, if you would like a more detailed pictorial guide to route and advised start & finish points just scroll down below.
We started our loop by the entrance gates opposite Chester Road and just to the left by the below the sign.
The 1km starting point sign with white painted line
The white painted line represents yoru strt point as you launch yourself anti-clockwise
After nearly 500m you will pass the Park Cafe on your left - your latte awaits..
As you crest the slight hill, you will pass the bigger gates opposite York Bridge
As the lactic increases so does the hedge height on your left - only 100m to go
And we look forward to hearing your results - please let us know via this blog or indeed via our The LGN Run Club on Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=24456264587
Happy running from all the team at LGN
