The race route is basically an out-and-back.

There is a 180 degree turnaround at the 5K point. The return is back along the A698 towards Bonjedward then south along the A68 back towards Jedburgh, to finish on the grass by the river opposite Queen Mary's house. A map of the route can be found on the Running Festival website. 

There are two water stations along the route, at approximately 4.5 and 5.5K. Water will also be available at the finish.

 

Please note that the 10K and half marathon start at the same time and travel in the same direction. At the 5K turnaround point, the half marathon runners will be continuing on along the A698 towards Kelso. The turnaround will be signposted and marshalled, so please remember to pay attention at this point and obey marshals' instructions.

 

All runners have the option of buying a race t-shirt - high quality technical fabric in specific male and female sizes.

All finishers will receive a commemorative medal.
