The 10k course utilises several bits of the course multiple times. and could be described as a run out to a circuit with a small lap before a big lap which adds in the hill fort before returning to home. While the 7 and 4k races are effectively single lap but the 4k misses the hill fort. There will be an aid station on the course visited by the 10k race 3 times, the 7k twice and the 4k once. The course will be well marked with plenty of signs with reflective elements, reflective course markings and lights to guide you around.
The course starts and finishes at the golf course. Spectators can watch finishers running in from the warmth of the golf club bar and restaurant with it’s big patio doors overlooking the course. DO think about wearing something distinctive so your friends and families can pick you out. There will be a prize for the best dressed runner.
Terrain varies from the tarmac path through the golf course – to gravel and dirts paths in the woods. If it's been wet it can get quite muddy.
You will need to wear a head torch to race and carry spare batteries or a backup torch, a limited number of which will be available to hire or buy on the night. We recommend emailing to book.
