Course Details

We will have a lead bike and marshals all around the course as well as mile signs and arrows. The course is two big laps of the outskirts and inside the park. Please be aware that there will be spectators and members of the public using the park; be aware of walkers, dogs and cyclists.

Please familiarise yourself with it before you start, there is a mixture of trail paths, well trodden pathway, and grass. The first 1.5 miles of the loop are rather hilly, flat for around 3.5 miles and then downhill for the final 1.5 miles. The course itself has a few long stretches where there may be lots of pedestrians and by then the race will have spread out, all you need to do is run straight, if you have to turn anywhere there WILL be signage and tape or/and marshals.

    Did the Half Marathon in 2019

    The event was incredibly well organised and the atmosphere was great! Plenty of course marshalls providing guidance and support on what was a tough course! Cool medal and t-shirt too!
  • Did the Half Marathon in 2019

    Excellent course (trails recommended)
    Well organised and marshaled around the course
    Nice medal (Engraving option on site) & T-Shirt
    The only down side was that the directions to the start were non existent once you arrived at the common. Having a few signs dotted around at major junctions (in the common) would have been a good idea.
    Would this stop me from doing another Run Through event, certainly not.

    Did the Half Marathon in 2019

    A brilliant event. One of the nicest courses I've done (entirely in woodland / fields), and without doubt one of the friendliest and best organised half marathons overall. Great pictures after the event - which you can use at no extra charge. Overall, fantastic value for money.

    Did the Half Marathon in 2019

    Possibly the friendliest marshals and organisers I’ve met at an event! Great course, just a shame I melted in the heat! Fantastic medal and t-shirt too!
    Well done guys!
