Course Description

The course starts at the top of The Avenue with the iconic Towneley Hall in the background. A fast start is assured as you head down to the bottom of The Avenue. At this point the course turns right for the first of two identical laps. After a short distance you turn left to pick up the path that hugs the playing fields. Follow this all the way round three sides of the park until you reach the bridge at the top of the park. Here you leave the path, turning right and heading down the grass towards the changing rooms. From the changing rooms it’s on to The Avenue then head on up towards the hall. Just before the gate at the top The Avenue the course bears right to pick up path that returns you downhill to the bandstand. From here it’s a right turn and head towards the bottom of The Avenue where you start the second lap. The second lap is slightly shorter as you cross the finish line a couple of hundred meters before reaching the bottom of The Avenue.
