Route information
Distance: 10k
Terrain: Road / Pavement
One Lap = 5k
This is a fully closed road course set in the historic town of Wells. Starting in Market Place, the route takes runners down the high street, before running over a paved track that joins the Strawberry Line cycle path.
Then you will run through the village of Dulcote to climb Constitution Hill, which will be the toughest climb of the route. The final stretch of the race will be flat, making for a perfect sprint finish.
The loop is 5k in distance, meaning 10k runners will run it twice.

The hill!!! I think better organisation at the start of the race missed the warm up and where to go for the start of the race I just followed others. Apart from that for my first 5k it was amazing, thank you so much for organising it, I will be back next year !

I am a recent couch to 5k graduate and this was my first ever “race”. Thank you for making it such an inclusive, fun event (I never thought I’d use fun and running in the same sentence!), for looking after us so well and for arranging a photographer too!

The water station by the second lap had run out of paper cups running were being advised to take water from large water bottles and the same bottle was being shared by runners no thought for infection control

Excellent day - just need to pace manage as you only know the extent of the hill after a few KM's and was daunting knowing you had to do it again on the 2nd circuit. Also some unexpected uneven footing and cycle/dog traffic to contend with.

Good well organised race with plenty of support and a good atmosphere.Not a PB course as two laps with a fairly solid hill but good fun nevertheless.

Fine except for your timing which, for me, was out by about the amount of time it took me to get from the back at the start and cross the line. I thought that that was the point of the chip.Overall I still like Well and you always have the cathedral!
