The route is a bit complicated, consisting of a steep climb followed by some lovely running over grassy fields (the right hand loop on the map), then a loop on mostly single track paths in the woods (left hand loop) with another stiff climb, then the first loop again followed by a very fast descent to the finish. The course is a bit changed for 2020, with less running on hard tracks and more on single track paths. The distance and climb are much the same though. As usual it will be well marked with reflective canes. Full waterproof body cover, map, compass and head torch required. Prize-giving at the Deeside 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.
