Course Details

The course is flat and mainly on paths with the exception of one section that is stone/trail. The 5k is one lap, the 10k two and the half marathon is 4 laps with one additional 1.1k section.

Buggies are ok, the course is wheelchair friendly (just note the one section that is on trail)


The housing crisis isn't about houses - it's about people. The lack of safe, secure and affordable homes is affecting people across the whole country. More than three million families could be one paycheck away from losing their home

Some stats:

Every day, 110 families in England become homeless
Every 13 minutes, another family in England becomes homeless
Please note fundraising is completely optional and there's no requirement to do so however if you decide to support Shelter, there is no minimum fundraising target, just raise what you can.

the run

The run will kick off at 9am for the Half Marathon and 10am for the 5k and 10k runs.

Please note that the start of the run will be staggered to avoid too much congestion on the towpaths. However this will not affect your time as our Results Base timing team will record your time from when you cross the starting mat.

There will be marshals around the course to support and encourage you.

Please take care when running around the course as this is public land and local residents will be out and about. Please always stay on the left unless otherwise guided.

If wearing headphones please make sure you can hear other people around you and marshal instructions.

The race started quite well. There was music and warm up but the race itself it wasn't great. The runners were aware of the circuit, but it wasn't said that there would be a part of the race where we would have to cross through a mucky field where the grass was bumpy and uneven and slippy. Apart from that, when I was passing by the "water" station at km 16 there was no water ready at all to give to the runners. Also I would have appreciate it a healthy snack after the race like a banana or something, not just candys. I wouldn't recommend this race even though it has a nice medal.

Well Organised and Fun. The race was very well organised and was a lot of fun. Plenty of staff, and the commentator was hilarious.

Absolutely brilliant, my first race. The race was well organised and all of the volunteers were brilliant. The host was great fun and the rest of the staff were very friendly. The wardens were well organised and it's so great that the proceeds go towards Shelter. Will definitely be doing more races with you guys!
