** We have changed the format for this event because of the further restrictions introduced since December and to make social distancing mandatory. We have made it an evening run with a two hour start window with rolling starts.
All entrants will receive chip timing, an A3 waterproof map of the route, a poem to way mark the route, a zoom 3D overview of the course and a Youtube walkthrough."
Green Lantern ambassador and multiple Olympian Jo Pavey said: "I'm very glad to be supporting this great event, which is raising money for FORCE cancer Counselling at the Royal Devon and Exeter Hospital".
The Green lantern is just over half marathon distance (14.2 miles) and follows the Green Circle around Exeter in a clockwise direction, starting and finishing in Haven Road opposite the Quay Climbing Centre, Exeter EX2 8AX.
This is a lovely mix of trails, meadows, playing fields and flatlands which run alongside the Exe, through the beautiful Ludwell Valley, Hoopern Valley, Redhills and Mincing Lake Country Park.
It links the industrial heritage of the city with some of its most inspiring natural surroundings in a way that will have you looking at the city in a new light.
