The course: Setting out from the near the water tower in Bury St Edmunds I ventured down to the Spread Eagle and then out on the Horsecroft Road. At the Hardwick Hall I surprised some one taking a video of some diary cows. The road is fairly quiet apart from farm traffic this morning there was a farm trailer carrying 3-4 farm workers driven by a tractor along the road. They seemed to be workers possibly from Poland.

Keep running straight past Horsecroft Farm and Hawstead Lodge until you arrive in Pinford End. Here there is a fork in the road the road up hill towards Whepstead but instead keep left along the Church Road. You soon pass the church and farm and instead of venturing down hill to Hawstead Green turn left to Pound Green.

Past Hawstead Hall you do venture up hill and you are on the course of the Bury Nearly 10 race. There are some wonderful views from up here of Nowton Church and Sicklesmere down the hill. When you reach the Pound/Low Green turn left to run the road past Nowton Country Park. Past the Victoria Sports Green along Cullum Road and back to the Water Tower.

Distance is roughly 9 to 9.5 miles though without a GPS a piece of string on a map is fairly inaccurate!.
