A undulating but not maddly hilly run to the west of Wakefield


Mostly road, or fairly decent tracks, with some less well defined paths.

Hazards and warnings

The path around the jail looks scary, but is a right of way. Just ignore the camera, lights and big walls!

Detailed description

Out to Alverthorpe, and then across Alverthorpe meadows, back along some small paths to near the jail. Around the jail, and back around the park before hitting the road and heading for home along the main road.
