Route information
Both runs will set off from Taunton Rugby Club, joining the picturesque canal towards Taunton. You will then join the river Tone for a short loop before linking back on to the canal.
The 10K Route is roughly 50% canal paths and 50% river paths which are both very flat and has easy to navigate terrain making this a great run if it's your first 10K, you're new to trail running or you want to put in a PB time.
The Half marathon distance route is similar to the 10k but will include an extra 5K out and back along the canal heading towards Bridgewater. The course is roughly 70% canal paths and 30% river paths and is very flat.
There will be a feed station on the Half Marathon route at approximately half way. This will be stocked with all the goodies you can possibly imagine to fuel the rest of your journey.
