good time and listen carefully to the pre-race instructions.
The course & race information
The course has been accurately measured by the Association of UK Course Measurers and is signed with km markers.
Unfortunately, due to its undulating nature, it is unsuitable for wheelchair athletes.
All roads along the route will remain open to traffic so please use the pavement wherever available.
The course will be well marshalled for your safety and the safety of other road users. For your added health and safety a
Red Cross Ambulance and crew will be in attendance augmented by qualified 1st Aiders around the course.
A pace bike will lead the runners around the course to warn other road users a race is in progress. Marshals will be deployed at
strategic points along the route supplemented by “caution” and directional signs at regular intervals. You must obey instructions
from marshals and race officials at all times!
Starting from Priory Park the route heads right onto Park Lane then turns left onto the A25, West Street. At the Black Horse turn left
into Flanchford Road. For the next 5 kms the route is largely unpavemented over undulating country lanes. Please take care, keep to the
left at all times and be extremely careful at blind bends. Turning left into Clayhall Lane there is a short climb at Flanchford Farm
followed by a narrow section and a sharp bend to the right into Slipshatch Road. The route enters residential roads at about 6K
where you must use the footpath along Sandcross Lane and in Park Lane East.
Turning right from Park Lane East into Park Lane at 7K you encounter a challenging hill! Note this road is narrow, twisting and
largely unpavemented so please take care, be mindful of traffic and follow the instructions of marshals. After reaching the top you
descend and are within the last mile or so. When you re-enter Priory Park there is a sharp turn to the right taking you across the grass,
around the Pond and back to the finish. After finishing your timing chip will be removed to ensure your time is recorded.
Water will be available at an on-course drinks station and at the finish. Please stay hydrated by drinking plenty of water before the race,
particularly if the weather is warm.

The use of MP3 players & similar devices is NOT allowed for safety reasons. It is your responsibility to follow instructions from
the marshals and race officials and not to put yourself, fellow runners and other road users at risk.
