The course begins by the Lion’s Den and takes in all the park has to offer, including the Boating Lake, Duck Pond and Pavillion Gardens. Inside the park the terrain is mainly path. The route then heads down towards Snipe Clough and loops around the hidden woodland area and back into the main park. A real community event, participants will get a warm welcome from spectators as they finish the route on the same path they started on.
The event site and start line is near to the ‘Lions Den’ to the north of the park.
