Race Start & Route:
The race start line is a short walk of 5 - 10 minutes from the Race HQ.
The start line is on the Main Brereton Road.
For the race start this section of the Brereton Road will be closed and is closed all the way until you turn off onto country roads. The start is a nice wide section of road which is great for those people who are out of position at the start. However, your chip time only starts when you cross the start mat.
The remainder of the route is on open roads and we request that you take care along the route and follow all marshal instructions.
Please respect all other pedestrians along the route. Some of the lanes are narrow and may have vehicles or bicycles travelling along them so please be aware of this especially when overtaking other runners.
There are Marshals placed all along the route these are well trained people and will be able to guide you on the route. They should also be used if you should require assistance, all marshals will have a mobile phone and contact details to be able to get advice or support if needed.
There are two water stations on route. The first station is at mile 3.5 and the second is at mile 7.
Each water station will have waste drop points, can we please request that water bottles are disposed at these points, if you should want to carry your water bottle can you please ensure that you dispose of it in and local bins or at the next water station.
There will be a Lead & Tail motorcycle for the race.
