Course Details

This route is all road. You will pass through the villages of Higham, Gazeley, Ashley, Dalham and Denham.

This event is called the Windmill Way Wander as you will see the windmill at Dalham. Prior to this if you look to the left, you will note some great views of Dalham Hall.

Whilst this is a road event, it does have rolling hills and an elevation of around 600ft.

Those doing under a half marathon distance will travel along an out and back, being turned around required, making it a very social route.

The half marathon will be one loop, 2 loops for the full marathon and then the run to the 5k turnaround point for an ultra.

Great event, with friendly staff helping along the way! If you don't mind a few hills then I'd recommend it! Plus great cake post race!

The race was very well run (pun intended). The route was well marked, there were nice treats at the end, and the medals are quite impressive. Highly recommended!

Friendly organisers. Route mostly well marked - one or two spots where it wasn't clear but just followed the runner ahead of me. There was an aid station at around the halfway point if needed. Route was quite scenic, all road but with very few cars as it turned out. A fair bit of elevation. We were well supplied with food and drink at the end. Nice medal.

Nice 1 loop course Challenging at times with 2 decent hills to contend with Super organisation Cracking cake afterwards and a class medal
