Herepath Half route

The course will be well signed and marshaled where the route is not entirely obvious and also at road crossings. There is one particularly busy road to cross and it is important for your safety that Marshals’ instructions are followed. Water stations will be positioned at 4, 6.5 and 11 miles.

Entrants should note that this is a relatively tough course with a variety of terrain, including some muddy sections. Trail shoes are recommended. There is a total of 1450 feet of ascent. Click here for a map of the route and here for the garmin course.

The trail has not been closed to other users during the event and care must be taken if walkers, cyclists or horse-riders are encountered. In particular you should slow to a walk when passing horses.
