Take in the sea air on this scenic route

This week’s Route Master…David Castle, editor, Men’s Running

Where is it? From Stubbington (Hampshire) down to Titchfield, then head towards the coast at Meon Shore for an early morning glimpse of the sea.

How far is it? 5 miles on the nose

Added extras? You get to run past Titchfield Haven nature reserve, a mecca for all manner of wild birds. Warning: don’t annoy the twitchers

Terrain? It’s pretty much all on road, but you can follow the canal path when dry for an off-road version. You can also run on the beach for the last mile.

Why do you like it? It’s not too challenging first thing in the morning, but there are some real bonuses. Seeing (and smelling) the sea air before breakfast is a great way to start the day.
