This is an on road, off road popular 2 lap course Garmin measured set in the beautiful Northamptonshire countryside starting & finishing from Desborough's own tourist attraction at the West Lodge Rural Centre.
One steady rise makes it slightly undulating but still a quick course and every chance for a PB. Hog roast and beer for after, vegetarians catered for, with an amazing goody bag including a bottle of wine, worth the entry alone!
Sure to be an entertaining evening!
The start/finish area is situated to the rear of registration and the Farm Park.
We measured the course with 3 separate Garmin watches taking the average of the 3 to make this a Garmin measured course.
There is an out lap of 0.9km before entering Lap 1.
Please be aware this is a multi-terrain course and will have the pitfalls of one. It is mostly flat but there are one or two ruts in the ground with a ramp at approximately 0.85km from the start and narrow sections. These will be well marked so you should see these in advance.
You then pass through the West Lodge Rural Centre grounds and through the beautiful Desborough countryside onto traffic free road. Turn right heading towards Desborough for 0.8 miles then turn right up Back Lane for a further 0.3 miles then right into the driveway of West Lodge.
The 5km and water station will be at this point and then you take the right filter heading on to lap2.
The final 400 metre section is also divided at this point and marshals will point you left towards the finish.
In the event of a warm evening, extra water will then be available at the opposite end of the course.
