This single-lap course winds its way through the scenic Priory Country Park, taking in beautiful scenes of natural spaces and Priory Lake along the way. It is a mostly flat course with a mixture of pathways and cross-country terrain.
Please bring a reusable water bottle if you require water during the event, as there will only be water available at the finish.
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 event starts and finishes in the field near Cloverdale Retreat, next to Priory Lake.
Please refer back to this page nearer to the date of the event for information on travel and parking.
Unfortunately this event is not deemed suitable for wheelchair users due to the cross-country terrain of Priory Country Park. The course is mostly on grass and this can become boggy when there is poor weather.
Should any spectators require blue badge parking, this will be in the overflow car park of Priory Country Park. Please be aware that the start/finish area is also on grass.
