Route description
Route description

Carver Barracks lends itself to running. The disused tarmac airfield is the perfect surface to run on. With the course being incredibly flat and with no sharp corners, this is a course you can instill your faith into when searching for a PB!

The course has been officially measured by the UK Association of UK Course measurers with incredible accuracy! The official measurement uses the racing line. Every turn will be scrupuously administered to the centimetre before race day to ensure maximum assurance for all competitors that the race they are running is truly the right distance.

1 Mile course to be announced shortly!

Good event and a nice flat course.....Only negatives: needs more portaloos, and more catering/food/drink options. Big queues for both this year

Really well organized with music playing and water stops with energy gels if needed on the half. As it’s laps round an airfield (3 for the half) it’s great for a beginner, and plenty of space for parking.

Nice fairly flat fast course, just a bit solitary in places due to the location. Great run for a fantastic cause with the bonus of an amazing Poppy medal.

Great course for beginners and to get a PB, nice and flat with only a few small inclines. Nice and organised with good parking facilities. Only thing would be to have more marshals around the route to support the runners.

Great event. Very friendly atmosphere. Easy parking with minimal waiting before the race. Excellent organisation. I would highly recommend this event. I thought running 3 laps for the half marathon would get a bit boring, but it wasn’t at all and the flat course was more interesting than I thought it would be. The parking was next to the start which was very helpful. Thank you very much, I thoroughly enjoyed it!

Excellent 5km run will be doing again next year ,highly recommended to all runners . Also really nice medal too
