Route information
Elevation Gently Undulating
Terrain: Paths
Route Type: Loop
This course through the forest mainly follows an undulating pathway or gravel and grass tracks. 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.
In this 6-hour event (if 9am start is selected), participants will run as far, or as little, as they want around a 5.3k lapped route through the stunning surroundings of Brandon Country Park.
They will make their way through beautiful expansive fields and enjoy the peace and tranquillity of the surrounding woodlands.
This easy-to-navigate route through the grounds means runners will be able focus solely on more on their pace and completing as many laps as they can.
Runners will have the choice to run the entire 6 hours, rest between laps at the aid station, or to finish their race before the 3pm end. This race is in complete control of the individual, so remember to take it at your own pace.
With small inclines rather than hills, this course is primarily flat and mainly follows an undulating pathway. 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.
You will have 6 hours to complete as many laps as you can, and if you're lucky maybe a little bit more because if you leave the base camp before 5:59:59, you can complete one more lap!
