Route information
All routes take entrants over a variety of trails, including old military roads, ancient woodland, and grassy paths. With just a few small hills to offer a challenge, this course is mostly scenic, and boasts views of the forest and the lake.
Be sure to keep an eye out for the Longhorn Cattle of the estate, who usually roam free in the forest, but will be in restricted fields for the race.
With a 5k Run/Walk also on offer, all levels will find something for them here. The 5k route takes runners past the church at Perlethorpe before travelling through woodland groves, and back onto the main field at the Hall.
