Once out of Farington Park it’s on to Stanifield Lane, with a short loop at the top end of Centurion Lane (crossing a traffic island), before turning left on to Fowler Lane.

Runners head along Fowler Lane until just before the cross-roads with Croston Road, when they will loop back toward and on to Stanifield Lane, turning right when reaching Centurion Way.
