Route Map



The race route is shown above. Drinks for the 5K route are at the halfway point. Drinks for the 10K route are at approx 2.5K and 7.5K. The start is a difficult uphill climb of approx. 500 metres and to spice it up we will be rewarding the first man and the first lady to reach the top as King and Queen of the Hill. Please obey the marshals at all times especially when passing through Merriott where there is a short section with no footpath. You must keep to the left here due to possible traffic hazards. Other than that the route is made up of quiet country lanes which are relatively traffic free.
