Course information

The Carlisle course is predominantly flat all the way round, mostly running on smooth paths and grass, with a short section of woodland trails. You will run around the newly renovated Sheepmount Stadium before heading back into woodlands and the gardens of Bitts Park.

Please bring a reusable water bottle with you if you require water during the event, as there will only be water available at the finish.

Please arrive 15 to 20minis before your start time so that you are prepared and ready to go on time.

Parking

In dry weather this route is accessible to wheelchair users, but due to the large majority of the course being on grass, assistance is recommended. 

In wet weather a large section of the course will be inaccessible to wheelchair users which will significantly reduce the distance. The grassy start/finish area will also be difficult to access.
