I ran this route this morning and it''s the longest run I have done. A little cold today but nonetheless comfortable. I really can''t understand why the wind seems to be against you no matter what direction you are running. By the way the car park is no longer free but is charged at 2.50 and is locked often well before sunset. However do as the locals do and park on the causeway for free.

In terms of psychology, if you park at the causeway free car park I suggest you go anti-clockwise. Going clockwise there are about 6 headlands to finish with and it feels never ending. Also going anti-clockwise means you have the long straight road as a good sprint finish.

Done this run this morning after heavy rain last night and its was nice to see that the path don't hold water. I agree with Ian it is a really nice run so i shall be adding it to my weekly training plan. I do surgest parking in the smaller car park by the causeway as there is no parking charges.

Really nice run. Lots of boats on the reservoir and plenty of wildlife so loads to look at as you go round. Some good local pubs as well - can get bit windy and watch out for the cyclists!
