Route information
This course takes runners on a 3-lap, out and back route, starting at Sovereign Water Works.
From here entrants will head south-west along the promenade, turning left at 0.83 miles down to the road, and then immediately right and onto the promenade.
Next it's back to where you started as you head along the flat course to the start line. At the end of your first 2 laps, head around the cone, where a marshal will direct you to turn.
On your final lap, keep left to avoid the turning cone and head across the timing mat to the finish line, where you can collect your finisher's medal after a job well-done.
