Cholmondeley Castle 10k & Half Marathon routes
The Cholmondeley Castle Half Marathon will see competitors undertake 3 laps of the spectator friendly 7K estate loop.
Starting adjacent to the cricket pitch and in full view of the castle the 1st K of the course follows a well worn track to an area of the estate called Cattle Crush. At this point and for the next 4.5K runners follow the internal estate tarmac road that takes them past the estate chapel, the Old Hall and out to the Beeston Lodge Gate before they double back and head towards the castle itself.
After passing the huge Victorian stable and supporting dove-cote runners will head uphill to the landscaped area behind the castle before turning right and heading steeply off-road up to the top of Castle Hill which affords a view of the stunning Peckforton Hills to the north of the estate. The final 1K of the circuit is mostly downhill off road passing the castle tea rooms, over the croquet lawn and down the main lawn of the castle.
With the finishing line in sight runners turn left at the fork and continue around for the 2nd and 3rd laps. Finally, with third lap complete, runners turn right into the finishing straight and cross the finish line with the castle as a backdrop, to receive their medal and the now famous finishing line banquet!
