The course is quite undulating over a testing 10 miles, mainly on the road, but with a short (1½m) off road section. The start and finish are at the Woodbank Stadium and there are two challenging climbs at 5 miles & 8½ miles. The course, although well marshaled, is not traffic free, be aware of traffic hazards along the way. The areas where road hazards are most likely to occur will be coned off allowing ease of passage for runners in single file. This applies twice at early stages of the race and the cones are only evident for a few meters in each case. Do not run outside of the cones into the road.
