Route Detail
A proper map will be displayed in at the bank and at the start of the race. In the meantime the course will follow the following route although this is subject to change:

Race starts at the Bank / Town Hall car park on Ross Road.

 

After a lap of the Town Hall the route heads WEST along Ross Road West to the Beaver Hanger then returns along Jeremy Moore Avenue (JMA) back past the bank and continues on to Ross Road East and Rowlands Rise.

 

From Rowlands Rise EAST (left) along the Airport Road (on the south (right) side of the road) to the airport.

 

At the airport (approx 7½ miles), through the car park and doubling back onto the road (but on the other side) – past Rowlands Rise (where the route joined earlier) and all the way to Sapper Hill to where the road surface changes. (Approx the half-way point).

 

Here the route doubles back (on the other side (south) of the road) all the way back to the airport. The airport for the second time marks 19 miles distance.

 

Again U turn at the airport and back along the Airport Road turning right at Rowlands Rise down the hill back into town past the bank, to the Beaver Hanger and back (via JMA) to the bank and the finish.

 

The route will be marshalled to give advice, assist with safety and to check that runners stay on the correct route. Please note, it is not possible for roads to be closed so it will be important for runners to stay aware of their surroundings at all times.
