Rugged Run – North Third Reservoir (Iain)

I’ve written about North Third Reservoir before as a swim venue https://twinbikerun.com/2019/07/19/outdoor-swim-review-north-third-reservoir-iain/

This visit was intended to be for a swim but there was one problem – lack of water in the reservoir. The water level was at least 8ft lower than my last visit which meant my usual swim loop was a (wet muddy) walk.

So instead I ran a loop around the reservoir. It was a nice 4 mile run that’s was easy to navigate. The path is well worn and easy to spot as its popular with dog walker and mountain bikers.

Check out the video below to see the great view from the top of the cliffs overlooking the reservoir.
