Spectators are welcome to watch at any point around the course, as long as it is safe to do so. However from experience, we know that it is nice to see loved ones cross the finish line, and there is some parking available at the stadium to do this.

The High Street also offers a good place to see the runners with local landmarks in the background.

The Shepherd Public House in Langham is on the race route and will also be open for teas and coffees and they do have limited parking.

Wherever you do watch those participating please take into consideration local residents and make sure you give all the runners a clap or cheer as they pass, it makes a massive difference.
