Half Marathon
Route information
Starting on the North Lawn, a few yards from the main entrance to the castle, competitors initially
head downhill towards the Boathouse and Lake before circumnavigating the enchanting woodland
garden of Ray Wood. The next 5K is on a network of estate tracks and bridle paths that wind their
way in a clockwise direction, always in sight of the impressive Mausoleum, passing through the
ancient Bog Hall, Spring Wood, Alamo Trekking Centre and High Gaterley Farm. At the 7K point
and just after the well stocked Feed Station, competitors enter the aptly named Pretty Wood passing
the Temple of the Four Faces and a couple of curious pyramids. The last 1.5K of the route builds
through the formal gardens of the estate starting with New River Bridge and moving onto the South
Lake, The Atlas Fountain and the South Lawn. A final, cruel, climb to the top of Ray Wood is a
precursor to a view of the Finish Line from the reservoir at the top of the hill. Lap 1 complete,
runners then re-join the same circuit for their second before entering the 500m long spectator lined
finishing straight, crossing the finish line with the world famous castle backdrop, to receive their
medal and classy finishing line banquet!
