Stanwick Lakes Summer Run routes

All the routes follow the wide gravel paths around the Stanwick Lakes nature reserve.
Runners have to cross the entrance drive to the site on all distances and HM runners also cross an entrance road to Ringstead Marina – These road crossing are marshalled
Due to all courses using the same paths we have not been able to add distance markers that will not confuse runners
Direction markers are placed around all courses to keep you running in the right direction
5K course is 1 lap with 1 road crossing that is marshalled
10K is 2 laps of the 5K course
Half Marathon follows the 5K course but then splits off to follow the old Nene Valley Railway line towards Thrapston. Once runners reach the turnaround point they run back down the railway line to re-join the 5k course. This is done twice to achieve the correct distance. There are 3 road/track crossing per lap on this course all of which are marshalled for you safety

Raceday Logistics
Sign In – Is open from 8.15am, on arrival you need to sign in at the Sign In Desk which is situated behind the start and finish line at the wood barn.

Each race 5k, 10k and 1/2 Marathon will be allocated a separate line to sign-in so please look out for the signage

We operate a ‘chip timing system’ so all runners will receive a chip band to wear on their ankle. These chips will be given out at sign-in along with your race number, which needs to be displayed on your chest. Safety pins will be provided.

Please ensure you are signed in and at the start line by 10.15am, as final instructions will be announced at this time. We will then start the individual races shortly after announcements.

Due to the number taking part we will stagger each run group to avoid congestion at the start of the run but remember you are individually timed so you don’t need to worry if you start at the back of the group.

We will start with the 1/2 Marathon then the 10k and then the 5k.

Can I wear Earphones?

We know that a lot of you like to run with music to help pace yourself and motivate your run and therefore we allow headphones to be worn. It is IMPORTANT however, to be able to hear race instructions, other runners and the general public who will also be using the course at the same time. So it is your responsibility to ensure you don’t endanger yourself or others.

    Great, scenic course. Well organised. Not many people out on the half marathon so not a huge buzz, but if you like running flat trails this one will suit you.
