Runners will be taken on the lakefront paths around Caldecotte Lake. to complete their chosen distances. A mix of hard gravel, some sections of concrete, and a few yards of mud and grass, this is a great trail run for new and experienced runners alike.
Marathon runners will complete the course 7 times, and Half Marathon runners 3 times. Those running in the Anti-Clockwise Marathon will, as expected, run the course in reverse.
If you are taking part in the marathon you may also take part in the 50k Ultra at no extra cost. You will be given a time for both the Marathon mark and the 50k finish at no extra cost.
