Routes

The courses are designed for all runners, of all abilities and are reasonably flat courses. The different race options utilise repeated laps on the paths and roads around the lakes. Each lap runners will receive their lap splits and can have this useful data to digest literally as they finish.

All races share the same finish; this is located outside the race HQ next to “The Green” with a stunning Lakeside view as a backdrop (photo on the right). Supporters and loved ones can also track your progress online, so whether they are at the event or at home they can appreciate your efforts.

There will be signage on the day instructing you on start areas, laps and the finish area. The course will be fully signed and marshalled. You will also be given bands to count your race laps and have access to a screen that will show the number of laps that you completed as you cross the line.

Lap route

Superb Tarmac surfaces

When onto the main loop you have the same – long, straight, minimal twisting and long sweeping bend laps.  All this makes for quick courses. Due to the seasons, we recommend shoes with reasonable grip, racing flats can easily be worn (but it is an event in November after all!).
