Route description
Route description

Feel like a star as you race 5k or 10k around the heart of Media City, past the ITV and BBC television studios, chasing fame and fortune - or maybe just a personal best.

The fast and flat course is a 2.5k loop that runs over the canal and past the studios as well as the imperial war museum, a museum dedicated to exploring the impact of modern conflicts on people and society. It is a perfect course to strive for that personal best time, or just to enjoy the sites and the cheering crowd.

The 5k course will be 2 laps, and the 10k course will be 4 laps.
