Route information
Terrain: Road
Route Type: 6.55 mile Out-and-Back
The course will be utilising the Denham Flats route (road route) which is a 6.55 mile out and back sociable loop. On this course you leave the centre and go out through the Barrow Village towards Denham. At around 3km you will see Ely Cathedral in the distance. You will also get the chance to run past the deer farm.
But don't be alarmed by this long time limit, this event is for runners of all abilities. This could be a great opportunity to run your first 5k, 10k, Half Marathon, Marathon or even Ultra Marathon. You can run as few or as many laps as you wish, resting between laps or pushing yourself through the whole 6 hours.
For those more experienced athletes looking to really push themselves, this is a brilliant opportunity to run a long distance with no other complications, no navigation, no kit required and with feed stations every lap.
Whether you are looking to run your 1st 10k, or your 50th Marathon, the brilliant Zig Zag Running team will cheer you all the way around.

Worth travelling the distance for, my second event there and just as enjoyable! Like not having to take fluid and food on run but everything needed at 5km to recharge! Great organisation and great folk. Thankyou

Was a good course to run, at one point I had a little tumble over a tree root but I got back up and carried on, no serious injuries just a couple little scrapes, very nice park and highly recommend all runners to take part next time.
