An easy run up Cullum Rd past the Haberden Rugby Club. One of my first jobs was at the Haberden Service Station. There was no self service in those days all the filling was down by the petrol pump attendant.The most memorable time working there was during a petrol shortage. I can’t remember the year but it must have been about 1976/1977. Cars were queued up for a mile just to get served. Petrol prices then were about 4 gallons for a fiver.

I then ran on past the Ramada Hotel and along the footpath/cycleway near the abbey gardens back into Town and home via Newmarket Road.

I expect participation in the sport of running to grow as we get closer to 2012 and the London Olympics. You can register your interest in acting as a volunteer for 2012 at this site.
