This course is a mixture of well maintained paths, road and grass. The grass section is 2KM, if we have poor weather the suitability of the grassed area may be affected, in this case guidance will be given on the day. There is a slight incline on the return route where some wheelchair users may need assistance.

Supporter / spectator access

Inviting your friends and family to support you on the day is a great idea, they can share in the joy with you as you cross the finish line and ring the bell.  They can also help you with those important things, like holding your belongings whilst you walk, jog or run round the course! 

Please note, whilst we hope we can open our events to families and friends supporting on the day, this may not be possible due to government guidelines around COVID-19. We will update on this nearer the time.
