Route Information

Start & Finish Venue: Nayland Village Hall, CO6 4JH, map

The route is the same as last year's, with subtle improvements including:

  • Adding the locally famous Gravel Hill into the 5k route
  • Removing bottlenecks at the start of the route

There are a few stiles to go over and gates to pass throughout the route.

The terrain is a mixture of grass (fields & footpaths), rough tracks and road (tarmac).

The distances are a guide and being an multi-terrain event they may be slightly longer than stated, however that is part of the fun of running a unique event!

No buggies or push chairs are permitted on the route due to safety reasons.

The route is subject to change at any notice.
