Route information
The Piddle Wood Plod 10k starts at Thurlbear Primary School, the route quickly picks up the Neroche Here Path trail and head out along small country lanes towards Piddle Wood. As you pass Netherclay riding stable the road gives way to tracks and become totally traffic free. A slight incline leads up to a major junction by the only water station. Here you will head up to Lime Ridge traversing Happiness Hill. (Don't forget to smile as you get to the top!) A flat section of track leads to a sharp rocky decent here you will have to be careful not to twist an ankle. The trail is flat and fast as it now passes Witch Lodge fishing lake, if your getting too hot here is the place to cool off. Over a foot bridge and back to the water station, half way. Track heads back up towards Lime Ridge but turns sharp left and takes a different route to the top of Happiness Hill, passing through some challenging undergrowth. Along Lime Ridge and back down the ankle twisting decent a second time before flying passed the lake. A last sip of water before heading back along the tracks and road back to the school.
