The Gravesend Floodlit 10k and 5k course uses the fast tarmac cycle circuit. The 10k event will cover four laps and the 5k event will be two laps. The route will be clearly marked using directional cones to guide you around the course and at the extremities of the course there will be extra lighting to guide you around the circuit.
The route is an undulating but fast course with a couple of inclines to contend with, along with a long downhill section and covers the tarmac roads using the outer circuit of the Cyclopark. Runners should be aware that although the majority of the Cyclopark is floodlit, the extremities of the circuit are not. We will be providing additional lighting in these areas; however, you may wish to run with a head torch if you struggle to see in low light.
St John Ambulance or an alternative medical provider will be in attendance on the day and the course will be marshalled to provide assistance. There will also be a sweep runner following the race to ensure that nobody is left behind and that all runners are accounted for.
