Route information
Terrain Tarmac roads
The course consists mostly of flat tarmac roads, offering plenty of PB potential! A tricky uphill climb through the Sand Hills arrives in mile two, before you hit the road towards the village of Everton. On the way back into Sandy, you get all the elevation you banked early on in a rapid, sweeping final-mile downhill just in time for your big finish.
Look out for the donkeys just after halfway, and Biggleswade AC's marshals trying to outdo one another in the daft hat stakes!
The course begins on Gosforth Close, Sandy SG19 1RB and ends just outside race HQ.
UKA race licence reference 2023-45597. The event is local authority approved.
