The course

The course is 10miles long, undulating, with a testing hill at around 6miles. It is approximately 6miles off road on farm tracks and bridleways, while the remaining 4miles are on reasonably quiet roads. With so much of the course off road, and given the time of year, the course can be fairly muddy.

The course is well marked and marshalled. There are large scale course maps on-line and at Race HQ and we always provide a sweeper on a bike to follow the last person to finish.

Why Join a Running Club?

There are many benefits to joining a running club here just a few reasons:

Meet like-minded people

Make lots of friends with people you already have running in common with and you can talk with people who understand your running interest/obsession! (blistered feet and all!)

Improve your running

You will always find someone who can run a little faster than you to be able to chase after. Organised sessions with interval training are designed to push you a little bit each week.

Support & Motivation

You will not only have your own personal bunch of cheerleaders but those days when you lack motivation become alot easier when there are others going out and getting it done and encouraging you. Just knowing other people will be there can make all the difference in lacing up your shoes and getting out that door!
