Starting & finishing on the picturesque Hoe promenade - adjacent to Smeaton’s Tower - the course provides fantastic views of the sea and a great atmosphere. The course is all on hard-standing and winds around the Hoe & surrounding areas, so please do expect several hills.
The start line is on the Hoe promenade, adjacent to Smeaton’s Tower.
