It is fully signed so no navigational experience is required. The course is a mixture with approximately 60% of it on a well-made path / tarmac. The remainder is grass and light trail which can get muddy at certain times of the year. Road shoes can be used all year round but if you prefer the extra grip on the trail sections then trail shoes can be worn.rnrnThe regular course is subject to some change near the time of the event depending on our health and safety review of the course and council / land owner final approval.rnrnMedals: As long as you complete one lap, you will be an official finish and you will receive our fantastic medal.rnrnGoody Bag: Absolutely!
