Route information
The Brampton Valley Way is a traffic free, super flat route with a constantly changing feel that cuts through the heart of rural Northamptonshire. At 28 miles or 45km, the distance is a little over a marathon thus officially making it an ultra run. The terrain and distance however, make it a good stepping stone for people considering looking at longer distances in the future.
You have the choice from which end you wish to start - either Market Harborough/Leicestershire or Northampton/Northamptonshire. This is the end you will be representing in the battle! There will be a timing mat at both ends so you'll get a halfway split time, with the course being an out and back.
