Route information
The races will start and finish on the historic 800 year old Yew tree-lined avenue, which gives stunning views and a straight finish.
Both are superb trails made up of tracks, gravel, and pathways with plenty of open space and the occasional canopy-covered paths.
Both routes will be shared on Strava and OS with GPX files to download the week before race day. We will keep you up to date, and let you know when the route information is live online.
There will be water stations at the start and finish of the 10k and 10-mile routes, there will also be one water station half-way on the longer 10 mile route.

We’re committed to the Jog-on campaign to reduce the number of unloved running shoes going to landfills. Please bring your old shoes to our event (and all our future events), so we can ensure they are recycled responsibly. Further information is below.
