Route information
Terrain: Tarmac Elevation: Flat Route Type: Loop
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 will be a lapped route of the paths/ roads within Newbury Racecourse rather than on the grass. The final stretch will you bring you to that famous chequered flag for your photo finish.
  • Half Marathon - 4 laps
  • 10k - 2 laps
  • 5k - 1 lap
There will be plenty of distance markers and marshals to help you keep track and encouraged on your way round.
