Route description
Route description

This 6 hour event enables all ability of runner to join in the fun. Walk, run, hike as many laps of the 5k course in 6 hours.

You can run one lap in 20 minutes, pick up your medal, flapjack and beer and go home! Alternatively you can head out on your 15th lap at 14:55 and finish in 6hr30 having covered over 50 miles! It’s completely up to you.

The route is full of ups and downs, but it's all worth it for the views. The first half of the route takes runners up some climbs with a hugely welcome downhill second half.

Runners will get a mix of terrain as they travel over crushed stone pathways, fields, and park paths. Be prepared for some muddy routes if it's been raining recently!
