Route description
Route description

This course is infamously fast and, when combined with its unique setting, makes for a brilliant place to set your next PB. The looped nature of the course means spectators will have a few chances to catch family and friends as they fly around the track.

The course follows the paths/roads within the racecourse rather than the grass, and that final stretch brings racers in under the chequered flag for that spectacular photo finish.

  • Half Marathon - 4 Laps
  • 10K - 2 Laps
  • 5K - 1 Lap

The course is clearly marked and marshals are there at every stage to keep morale high and lead you into the finish line.
