Course information

The course goes through the Italian Gardens and then follows the path around the lake and through the woodland area before finishing back in the event site. The course is on a mixture of terrains, and is fairly flat, however there is one steep hill and a small section through the woodland. The event is wheelchair friendly but assistance will be needed.

 

Meeting point

The start line is in the large event area behind the barefoot trail - directional signage will be put up from the entrance to the gardens. 

There is currently a one way system in place around Trentham Gardens so please ensure that you follow all  directional signage when entering and exiting the venue.

Entry into Trentham Gardens will be controlled to allow a set number of participants entry at any one time. Participants are therefore asked to arrive at the Garden entrance 45 minutes ahead of their Race start time. Admittance will be controlled accordingly and social distancing must be maintained whilst queuing to enter the garden so we thank you in advance for your patience.  

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.

Parking is available at the venue. It is a 15 minute walk from the car park to the start line. Please allow 45 mins from arrival at the entrance of the gardens to the start of your event/wave to accommodate admittance into the venue and walk to the event site.
