The race starts at the end of the bottom horizontal red line and proceeds to point (1), so almost the old route in reverse up to this stage. At point (2) on the route, all runners will turn right and head towards Sandy Lane, on reaching which runners turn left and follow the old course in reverse again until reaching the corner of Nightingale Lane, at point (6). Upon returning to point (2), WOMEN WILL TURN A SHARP RIGHT towards the Heron Pond and finish and MEN WILL TURN LEFT towards Sandy Lane complete a second loop. Upon completion of this loop and returning to point (2) men will then turn the sharp right and continue to the finish. The distance is around 4.95k for women and 7.2k for men.
There will again be a divided funnel, on which MEN WILL FINISH ON THE LEFT and WOMEN ON THE RIGHT.
Mostly gravel path and road. Spikes are not suitable.
There are toilets located at the play area, a 1 minute jog from the start.
