Course information

Delamere Forest's scenic 3k out and back course features a mixture of terrain such as winding trails, and undulating woodland paths that incline and decline through the charming woodland. Delamere offers an invigorating route through its stunning shady oasis.         

Due to parts of the course being in the forest, it may become slightly muddy underfoot depending on recent weather conditions.

There will not be any water refill stations along the course so if you require water during the event, please remember to bring your own reusable water bottle already filled up. You will be able to refill this at the refill station when you finish.

Please arrive 30 to 45 mins before your start time so that you are prepared and ready to go on time.

Our courses have been measured with a measuring wheel. This is the most accurate measurement method and may not always correspond with digital tracking apps and watches.

The Delamere Forest 3k features undulating woodland pathways, stone paths and areas with a steep incline and decline, so those with accessibility issues would require assistance on the uneven surfaces. 

If spectating, the event site is on hardstanding, but is surrounded by grass and fairly narrow, steep pathways. There is disabled parking available at the new visitor centre for spectators. The visitor centre is surrounded by areas of hardstanding. Please be aware that in bad weather conditions the ground may become boggy and challenging for those with mobility issues.
