The course is predominately off road on well maintained public footpaths and isn't particularly technical.
Most of the course is undulating but with very few prolonged climbs, making the course tough but very runnable.
The majority of the route is on dirt footpaths or on grass through fields. There are some connecting sections on country lanes.
Due to the time of the year we don't anticipate the ground to be too soft, but it is likely to be muddy or wet in places.
Please check the ultra event page for mandatory kit list.
All road crossings will be marked by signage in advance. Each runner is responsible for their own safely while crossing roads, and if necessary runners will need to stop to allow traffic to pass. We will not have right of way.
