I'm staying at a hotel near the Etihad for a gig and the hotel doesn't have a gym. Can anyone from that neck of the woods recommend a 5KM/10KM route for a mid-long length run. I hope to do about 10 miles but would prefer smaller lops of, say 5KM so I don't get lost! Also, is it reasonably safe running round there in daylight hours?

Can't say anything for your specific location, but I use this website all the time when going somewhere new to find a route and measure it roughly.

Okay, I live right by the Etihad. There is a canal path that runs from the city centre, past Etihad Campus, and beyond. Alternatively, I can plot you out all manner of routes around there, depending on what you want. When about are you heading up?

I'm there Saturday/Sunday. Am plannign a parkrun enroute Saturday am so probably looking for something Sunday am. If you could put a garmin track up for a run near there that would be fab Jamie. I'm probably looking for a route of about 5KM that I could repeat to make it up to what I feel like doing in total or maybe a 10Km on an out and back route?

http://www.fetcheveryone.com/routes-view.php?id=1358006 is a fairly dull 5km loop around Openshaw - ignore the slightly squiffy start as my Garmin misbehaved.

Alternatively, if it's this Sunday, I could always come and run with you?

Jamie - that sounds great if I could do a run with you - that way I;m less likely to duck out if I have a hangover form the night before :). I'll PM you my contact details tonight & info on where I'm staying. Woudl you be able to run earlyish as the others I;m travelling with will likely want to head off on next part of our travels before it gets too late (we are off to another gig in Brum on sunday).
