During the race
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.
The Start and Finish will be easily accessible for anyone wanting to come and watch the event. You are free to wander around the park.
After the Race
You will be able to collect your T-Shirt and Medal after the race.
Results will be available on www.runthrough.co.uk after the race.
Things to note!
There WILL be pedestrians on the course, so please be aware of this. We have marshals around the course and signs but this is not a road race, you have to pay very close attention to where you are going. We recommend you do not use earphones and you need to be aware of your surroundings.
