Course Details

Join us for an awesome run setting off from the Taunton rugby club which quickly joins the beautiful canal taking you into towards Taunton... Then around a short section of the river Tone before you link back onto canal.

The 10K Route is roughly 50% canal paths and 50% river paths which are both very flat and has easy to navigiate terrain making this a great run for your first 10K, new to trail running or want to put in a PB time.

The Half marathon distance route is similar to above but will include and extra 5K out and back along the canal heading towards Bridgewater. With roughly 70% canal paths and 30% river paths the course is very flat coupled with easy to navigate terrain it makes it at great first time half marathon distance, getting used to trail running or want to chase down a personal best!

We will be providing a feed station for the half marathon runners which you can expect to see halfway through the course. We aim to have something for everyone here to keep you on your 'A' game throughout the rest of the run. To list a few ... High5 gels, assortment of fruit, jaffacakes, figrolls, crisps, jelly beans, soren bars, free from selection, home made cakes and much more.

This is a fantastic chance to join us for our only flat route of the year. We want to make our events as inclusive as possible and if your new to trail running this a lovely entry point to build your confidence before perhaps heading for some more techincal trails. Our events bring in an epicly diverse group of runners all joining together and thats what makes our events so awesome.

We look forward to seeing you at the event and experience what 'Prosper Events' has to offer.

Decent parking, nice route, good number of marshals, home made cake halfway through(!). Really friendly event that wasn't huge - the downside of that was that there weren't many supporters out there. Main reason for not getting a 5 star review is that there was only a medal and an energy drink in the goodie bag. I'd have liked a T-shirt :).
