Route information
This course is famously 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.
