Route description
Route description

The Half Marathon race will start on the main road adjacent to the Banks Sports Club in Dennes Lane,just off the High Street.

Participants will head out to the north of the town for a rural out-and-back route through the quiet lanes surrounding the town.

The 20 Mile Race follows largely the same route as the Half Marathon. However, runners for the 20 Mile event will also complete an additional loop through Brookland.

Both routes are pancake-flat and perfect for those looking to get a PB.
