The Course
This accurately-measured course is undulating and uses the roads surrounding the pretty village of Dedham. There will be kilometre markers along the route and it will be fully marshalled.

You can view the course map here.

First Aid
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.
Your individual time and position will be recorded by your electronic chip. We will endeavour to display results as they come into the race centre. Prize giving and presentations will take place approximately 60 minutes after the first runner home.

Results will be uploaded to www.nice-work.org.uk as soon as possible after the race. All entrants that have supplied a valid and legible email address will receive a copy of the results as soon as possible after the race.

"I was very impressed. On the day registration was quick & easy, with MANY very helpful volunteers. Chip timed. Marshals excellent throughout. Figure of 8 course, passing through the village centre half way, meaning opportunity for spectators to watch at start/mid-way/finish! Excellent atmosphere at finish and again, we'll organised like the whole event was. Well done to the organisers. "
