Course Details

Both the 10k and family fun run routes are TRAIL runs. – predominantly off road on paths and woodland terrain. Please be aware of trip hazards and uneven footing.

This is a ‘live’ route and given the nature of the event, runners may encounter walkers, cyclists, horse riders and other members of the public. Please respect social distancing and be aware you may be required to give way. The Sandridge10k is a scenic rather than PB course!

There will be physical route markings out on race day and marshals stationed along the course.

Marshals will be stationed at points where trail intersects with road. All runners need to be aware there may be live traffic and should engage road safety sense at all times.
