Rugby Challenge route

You can see the conditions of the course from the photos of previous events. In summary, it's flat for 3.3 miles with a little killer of the zig zags at the end of each lap! At least it means you get to go down them at the start of each lap though... Underfoot is mainly a new £50 000 crushed stone path. There is a small section of old track that can become muddy and waterlogged if it has rained heavily in the lead up to the event. It is a very runnable course, although if you run for 6 hours we'll be very impressed if you run up the zig zags on your last lap! Lap 1 will be slightly different so you don't have to start in single file going down the zig zags.

You decide how far the race is! The 3.5-mile out and back lap along the Great Central Way means your race can run just over 5k or, given the relatively flat nature of the course, potentially 49.5 miles! You decide how many laps you are going to do on the day within the 6-hour time limit. If you're looking to cover a marathon distance you'll need to complete 8 laps (28 miles) and a half marathon will be 4 laps (14 miles).
