The 5k course will start/finish on the trail by the lake. Run/walk out over the bridge along the donkey path towards Newbold Road. Just before the underpass turn left and cross the bridge. Follow the trail along the lower path back to the lake then go round the lake and complete a second lap. 

The 1500m course is just over 2 laps of the lake so participants remain in full view at all times. A medal is awarded to all those who complete the 1500m.
