Route description
Route description

The course is a 5k loop of undulating trials and paths within Bedgebury Forest. The course starts and finishes within the Pinetum meaning the route should be quiet with no vehicle traffic.

There will be other forest users and bicycles crossing the routes, so runners should be alert to other users.

The looped nature of the course means 10k runners will complete 2 laps of the course.

I wish I'd been told the correct start time in the most recent email I had from you. My dog was getting anxious with the extra hanging around. Others were worried they were missing the start too.

I really enjoyed the course. Such a beautiful place for a run.The only thing I missed was more basic etiquette from several runners. Informing when overtaking or thanking when helped.... Regardless the downs. I loved it and I hopefully come again!
