Please Note,

By arriving on the start line you are confirming your ability to participate.

It is the runners responsibility to ensure they are fit and well.

If you’re in any doubt please consult a medical professional.


We get lots of enquiries about the terrain and suggested footwear for this race.
The majority of the course is Tarmac. Miles 5 – 9 look similar to the picture on the left. It’s beautiful but please be aware the route is slightly looser under foot. The track is used year round, it has been in place for 40+ years. It’s well trodden and worn in. We cannot promise there won’t be damp sections, especially in the wooded areas. We run here year round in road shoes but some people choose a more winter based trail shoe. It’s not an off road or trail shoe event but please note the difference in terrain. Miles 0-5 + 9-13.1 are all on tarmac footpaths.
