Route information
Terrain: Tarmac
Route Type: Loop
Starting and finishing inside the beautiful Sutton Park, the course heads out onto paths within the park for a lapped 5k, 10k or Half Marathon route that takes in the scenic nature of the park.
Previously the home of the National Road Relays, you will be running on the paths once pounded by Sir Mo Farah, Andy Vernon and many more of GB's greats through the 2,400 acre National Nature Reserve.
The entire course is inside Sutton Park on the roads/paths not on grass and involves laps around the Park.
Each Mile will be accurately marked out and there will be plenty of helpers to keep you quite literally on track and encourage you on your way.
  • 5k - 1 lap
  • 10k - 2 laps
  • Half Marathon - 4 laps

Course is very hilly which I didn't like very much. The atmosphere was great, event announcer was really good. The warm up was really good. The volunteers using musical instruments was pleasant to hear. Snacks at the end were really tasty. Really enjoyed the event :).

Very enjoyable. Mix up with the dates of the half marathon as it was originally on the 29th of May and then 2 weeks before the race it changed to the 23rd of May.
