Birch Challenge route

The course is brilliant. It's hilly, with 1 large incline and lots of rolling hills but towards the end of each lap is the amazing spectacle of crossing a river via the stepping stones. The route follows the recently established 5k fixed running route. Conditions underfoot are good as the pathways are well established. Some of the pathways are quite stony so ultra thin shoes aren't recommended.

From the organizer

How far is the race?

You decide! The 3.3 mile off-road loop means your race can be 5k or over 50k and anywhere in between. You decide how many laps you're going to do on the day within the 6-hour time limit. If you're looking to cover a marathon distance, you'll need to complete 8 laps and a half marathon will be 4 laps.
