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.
