The course is flat and on concrete paths.  It's a 2.5km lap, so please follow the instructions. It's 2 laps for the 5k and 4 laps for the 10k. We'll have plenty of stewards on the course to guide and encourage you along the way. The course is sign posted and parts taped, so please stay on the course.  Please take care when running as local residents will be walking in the park.


Starting the Race

The Kids race will start first at 9am and the 5k/10k races will start once the kids race has finished at 9.30am.

To ease congestions at the start of the race please could you take the appropriate place in the field:
