The race is made up of a short but steep climb and then three loops – the right-hand loop on the map, followed by the left-hand loop, then a repeat of the first loop. Then there is a fast descent to the finish. All loops are run anti-clockwise. Full waterproof body cover, map, compass and head torch required. Prize-giving at the Activity Park where post-race soup, sandwiches, coffee, cake etc will be available for purchase, .
If you think you will be coming to the race it would be very helpful if you could register in advance here: register This is free and does not imply any commitment, but will speed up the registration process and give us and the cafe some idea of how many runners there are likely to be. Pay when you collect your number.
