Course information

Our 5k event offers a flat, single lap route around The Stray. The terrain is a mixture of grass and paths and is suitable for all levels of fitness and experience.

This event can accomodate wheelchair users but please be mindful that although this course is flat, over 50% is on grass with no path alternative so assistance may be required.

Please bring a reusable water bottle with you if you require water during the event, as there will only be water available at the finish.

 

Meeting point

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 situation, we’ll  be operating a staggered start time in 2021 to ensure your safety on event day. Additional start times may become available as/when needed.

The meeting point/start line is within one of the open fields on The Stray; near where Oatland Drive meets Slingsby Walk. This is clearly visible when approaching the Stray from any direction.

Pedestrians: There are no specific entrance points to the open fields of The Stray but please be vigilant as you may cross the course at multiple points on your way to the meeting point/start line.
