The Marathon an elusive target for most runners, but its achievable if you train for it, you will have plenty of support on route so there is no better time than now to try, its two laps of the half marathon course, so you can take as long as you need after the first lap, have a breather a coffee and then go for it.

COURSE SIGNAGE
Once you set off from the event centre the route will be marked with the use of arrow signs and marker ribbons. Arrows signs will be approx. every 300 metres on the route.so quite simply you follow these signs.

COURSE ARROWS
The orange signs with white arrows marked on them will direct runners in the direction they should take to complete your chosen route.
It is important you take extra care when you see these signs to ensure you follow your chosen course, they are approx. every 300-400 metres.

There are additional direction triangles used along the route Additional course directional arrows SPLIT POINTS
Course split points will be used to highlight where the route splits for the shorter distances. A orange and white ‘course split ahead’ sign will warn runners that the route will split.

EXTREME CAUTION SIGNS
Orange extreme caution signs will be used where appropriate to mark potential hazards such as, steep downhill stretches, road crossings. and. When you see these signs, you should reduce your speed and run with extra caution.
Although the route is clearly marked, you should study your map long before starting to familiarise yourself with your route.

    Did the Half Marathon in 2019

    Absolutely loved the relaxed atmosphere of this race. Proper grass roots running with friendly Marshall’s and a fabulous route. Loved it!!!! If you want chip timing etc spend double the money and do a boring commercialised race. This was much more fun.

    No water available in the 10k race, How hard is it to provide water! The organisation is pretty poor especially at the finish line, I had no idea where the finish line was. The parking was O.k but a bit far from the start and no sight of any first aid. Shame about the weather as there were rivers of water on the roads. Beyond events need to up their game.

    Did the 10k in 2019

    I ran the 10K - it was very well signposted (especially as there were 4 different distances) - the turnaround point for the 10K was very clearly marked with marshalls there making sure on this very straightforward out and back route. However, there were no water stations at all on the 10K route. A pretty route and undulating. The finish was bizarre - I couldn't tell if I had finished - there was no finish sign - no funnel and no evidence of a timekeeping system. However they gave me a nice medal. Parking was well organised albeit quite far from the HQ/start. Don't remember seeing any medics or first aid points. The other strange thing was that the official caterer called Peace, Love and Bananas did not sell any bananas and seemed unaware that this is a popular choice for runners. Could be a great race - just a few tweaks needed. The countryside is beautiful and I enjoyed the event in spite of the rain which eased during the event itself. People were friendly and it would work for beginners.

    Did the 10k in 2019

    Well the event was OK, but there were a few things not so good, firstly water stations, non existent in the 10K, and bring your own cup (fine) but the station was at 14K! The finish was chaotic, no sign saying exactly where the races finished, the run director blended with the crowd and wandered about, so if he got your exact time is a big question. I understand due to the weather they could put up the finish structure, but not to have a plan B and not have any signs marking the finish line was inexcusable. Marshalls seemed to be in short supply too, bearing in mind the road was still being used by traffic. Not sure I will be going back, unless the event organiser is changed

    Did the Half Marathon in 2019

    Great route but poorly organised. Only one water station on a half marathon and this was not even on the route. There were no obvious medical backup. The finish was a real anti climax, no marked finish and nobody knew when they had completed the races.
