Course information

This single lap course weaves through the Town Moor, taking in sections of Great North Road and Grandstand Road before entering the Town Moor once again. The route is a flat course on mixed terrain including paths, road and some small sections on grass. The main event site is on grass so may be slightly muddy underfoot depending on recent weather conditions.

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.

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

Meeting point

The start and finish lines are situated within the Town Moor on the field adjacent to the Claremont Road bridge and Exhibition Park.

This event is recommended as suitable for wheelchair users with assistance due to terrain that can be very difficult to navigate. The majority of the course utilises the paths of the Town Moor which are surfaced with large stones, thus creating long sections of uneven terrain. The main event site and some small sections of course are on grass so may be slightly muddy underfoot depending on recent weather conditions. The course can be adapted to avoid grass sections. Please speak to a member of staff on the day for details of the alternative routes.
