The route then enters the proximity of the racecourse and follows it around the edge for approximately 3KM, before looping around the driving range and heading back towards the event site to finish.

Please be aware the ground can be uneven at times.

Although the majority of the route takes place on tarmac, there is a 1km section of the course which is on uneven and potentially boggy grass. There are also a number of uneven and challenging surfaces along the route. Therefore, the route is deemed not accessible for wheelchair or pushchair users.  The Course has an overall ascent of 18m throughout the full 10K course.

Accessible parking will be available in Car Park 4 and the start/finish area is on hardstanding.
