The course is nearly all tarmac promenade, pavement or road but between the Ferry and the Martello Tower there is a stretch of sometimes heavy shingle and so because of this we are sorry to say it is not suitable for wheelchair competitors.

The course will have two water stations and also water at the finish.

There is metered car parking available around the Leisure Centre, IP11 2AE for satnav. There is ample car parking at Garrison Lane car park, IP11 7SH for satnav.
