The race is on a long 10k course with 2 laps for the half marathon. The 5k just uses a part of the lap. We’ve gone for this option so we can mark the course with plenty of signage and course markings. The course is a figure of 8 and an aid station will be half way around each lap. So the 10k will have one aid station on course and the half 3. Plus refreshments for all races at the end.
Terrain varies from small bits of tarmac, a lot of gravel paths as well as mud paths some exposed rocks and a fair amount of grass. With the time of year we’d expect trail shoes to be a good idea but watch the group Facebook page for updates in the week of the race.
You will need to wear a head torch on the second lap of the half marathon if you are going to be running after sunset at 9:15pm. For which you need to be able to start the second lap before 7:45pm (1h 15 mins into race).
All finishers will receive a finishers medal.
Age limits 13 and above for the 5k, 16 and above for both 10k’s, 17 and above for the half marathon.
