5 mile route

Mostly on minor country roads but start and finish are on a sports field and there is one section 0.8 miles long of quite uneven footpath which can be muddy in places. Off-road amounts to around 20% of total. Unfortunately, the bulk of the first mile is on a bridleway which makes it unsuitable for wheelchairs/buggies.

Fun Run

The fun run is approximately 1.5 miles with medals to all finishers. Under 9’s must be accompanied by an adult at all times as the run is on public roads

Late entries will be available on the night but entering online is preferred to save congestion at registration.
