Course information

The 5k route winds itself around Yeovil Recreation Ground and also utilises the Athletics track.  The terrain is varied, a mixture of pavement, track and grass.  We have adapted the route for 2021 and will no longer be closing Mudford Road.

Meeting point

The main event area is located on the grassed lawned area just to the left of the Yeovil College buildings as you come in the main entrance.  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. Please arrive no earlier than 15 minutes before your start time.


There is no parking onsite in 2021 and we will be asking participants to utilise parking within Yeovil Town Centre.

Supporter / spectator access

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.

We will be giving away bottled water at the finish line. But due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic and our plans to reduce single use plastics at our events we encourage participants to bring their own water or hydration fluids on the day.
