The Plymouth 5k route starts and finishes on the picturesque Hoe promenade, adjacent to Smeaton’s Tower, and provides fantastic views of the sea and a great atmosphere. The course is all on paved paths and follows closed roads around the Hoe and pathways in Hoe Gardens, so please do expect some inclines and some uneven surfaces.

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