The whole route is on a fast tarmaced surface with gentle gradients of no more than 2% in only a few places on the route. This makes this a great fast course, certainly the fastest Relish Running course out there and there is a great chance of recording a PB on this route! The official course measurement reference number is 236/2201.
You could choose to run the full 10km if you wanted an extra challenge.
The route heads steadily uphill towards the 408m long Devonshire tunnel, passing by Bloomfield Open space on the left hand side. After rounding the first tunnel runners emerge out in the wooded Lyncombe Vale area. There is 1km of open running along the elevated embankment and through cuttings heading towards Combe Down Tunnel. The turn around for the 5km is just 25m before the entrance to the second tunnel. Runners then enjoy a slightly downhill run back to the finish.
Join Team Lily for the one of a kind event and help us find that cure.
Dates are also available on the 12th May, 14th July and 18th August.
