Course information

The Start and finish lines are entirely on grass which is flat.  They are surrounded by a perimeter path should this be preferred.

The Course is a combination of grass and surfaced paths.  The majority of the route is flat with a few uphill and downhill sections, which all add to the fun and challenge.  The course is a double lap of the 5k route. 

Please remember to bring your own water bottle already filled as there will be no bottled water provided at events. There will be a water refill station 1/2 around the course and a Scottish Power water refill station will be available to use at the finish. 

Please arrive 30 to 45mins 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 match up with fitbits, Strava and Apple watches.
