Bluebell Challenge route
This hilly course through beautiful Hartshill Hayes Country Park is not to be underestimated; with each lap of this 2.88 mile course, runners will experience over 280ft of elevation change. If you choose to run a marathon, there will be over 3000ft of climbing.
Luckily, the beautiful scenery of the course makes it all worth it. The course runs mainly through the mature woodland, and there's a killer set of steps you get to run down and some stunning views across four counties at the start of each lap. There's a very short section of tarmac (around 20m) followed by some compact trail, but the vast majority of the course is woodland trail. The blanket of bluebells that usually covers the course at this time is an added bonus to make this a truly rewarding trail.
A unique part of this event is the ability to make it your own. With nothing but a 6 hour time limit on the course, runners are able to decide just how many loops they wish to complete on the day. Those wishing to cover a marathon will need to complete just over 9 laps, while the half marathon will be just over 4 laps.
