Route information
This trail running event has a Marathon, Half Marathon and 10k allowing runners of all abilities to come and take part. All 3 races will start at the spectacular Layer Marney Tower, and take in the beautiful countryside surrounding it. Runners will enjoy the sights and sounds of the Roman River valley and the villages alongside.
The route will take runners on mixed terrain with hard packed trail paths, some tarmac and some grass footpaths. Runners will cross the river numerous times, and given the nature of the river valley, there will be a few hills to contend with. Marathon runners will run the Half Marathon route twice, with the 10k taking a slightly different route.
