All you enthusiastic runners out there will know the problem: running up and down the same strip of land over and over again is terribly boring. For those of you in Cambridge, I have compiled a selection of different running areas which you can try out to get some variety into the business.
What the suggested runs have in common that they are aimed to avoid motor traffic and tarred roads as much as that is possible. Please note that most of them are star-trips, i.e. you will have to come back the same way you came. You will find that most of the better areas are further away from the centre than is convenient - I say, use your bike to get out into the countryside - it's worth it.
Please let me know, in case you have any suggestions on other, maybe better, areas - we might get a decent running guide out of this. [Although Eric has now left Cambridge, suggestions are still welcome - please send them to the current webmaster]
