Hi, Is there a Strava route for the marathon route, appreciate it is laps but trying to check elevation but can’t find anything. I ran silverstone last year thinking it would be flat but is was undulating for majority of the course. Thanks

Hello, according to my Garmin record, the total elevation was only 21m up for full marathon course. I has remembered due to nearly perfect flat course, it killed my same muscles and the latter half was a disaster to me.

Very similar to Silverstone. Looks flat but one pretty sharp hill in the back straight that’s hard work especially if the wind is against you.
Susan Jolly
