Course information

Our 3k event offers a single lap route around the grounds of Graves Park. Less than 10% of the course is on an incline and the terrain is a mixture of grass, tarmac and narrow woodland paths which may be uneven in places. 

This event is suitable for all levels of fitness and experience but unfortunately cannot accommodate wheelchair users due to the terrain.

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 the large playing field behind the Graves Park Pavillion. This is clearly visible from the Cobnar Road pedestrian entrance and the designated event parking in the adjacent field.

Pedestrians: Please use the entrance through the Pavilion car park on Cobnar Road. A steward will direct you to the meeting point/start line. Please adhere to the one way system. Other pedestrian entrances to the park may also be used but please be vigilant as you may cross the course at multiple points on your way to the meeting point/start line.

General event parking: Please use the main gate into Graves Park on Cobnar Road. A steward will direct you to the car park. Please adhere to the one way system and 5mph restrictions at all times.
