Routesheet: Midlands 300 Routesheet 2018

Despite passing over the Slieve Bloom mountains on the approach to the second control this is still by some way the flattest 300 in the country. Aimed at first-timers and PBP / LEL hopefuls alike, navigation is straightforward and towns offering shops, cafes and garages for refuelling can be found at regular intervals along the route.

    1. Hi Dave , many thanks for a great event. It was well organised and lovely secret control point and also the full and plenty refreshments at the end , Cheers Leonard and the late crew…

    2. Hi Dave, big thanks for a hugely enjoyable day,
      Well organised….especially that ice cold long neck at the finish !

    3. Hi Dave,Colin and Ken, all eight of our 300 Orwell Wheelers crew (including 5 first timers) were over the moon with the great welcome you gave us in Joe’s last night . It was great to celebrate the achievement with the warm welcome food and the cool beer. Genuinely it makes a big difference to have all that organised at the end of a challenging day. Well worth the effort, and very much appreciated, to have a great place, and atmosphere to celebrate the moment, thanks a million guys
