This accurately-measured course is undulating with a flat 4k finish along the sea front; all the road sections are quiet but not closed to traffic. There will be kilometre markers along the route and it will be fully marshalled; the course includes a short ‘dog leg’ after Kingsdown Hill. Lead cyclists will precede the first runner and follow the last runner. Please be aware of any cyclists using the cycle path, which runs parallel to the race route for part of the course.
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 marshal following the race to ensure that nobody is left behind and that all runners are accounted for.
