The course is set in the stunning home of the Grand National. The terrain is flat with a mixture of grass, internal road and path. The 10k route crosses Melling road and passes the famous Beechers Brook and Canal Turn. The event has a fantastic atmosphere, you couldn’t ask for better.
The meeting point is in the middle of the race course and you will have to walk through the famous stands to get there.
