The race will start just outside the Innovation Centre and, after a short loop around the centre, runners will head clockwise around the reservoir and cover two laps for 10k and one lap for the 5k. Due to the multi terrain nature of the event, we are unable to get a certificate of course accuracy, but the route is as close to 10k/5k that GPS technology will allow.
The route will be clearly marked using large route arrows, as well as being marshalled throughout. Please note that even though the route is run on the trails surrounding the reservoir, we do not have exclusive use of the site and there will be other users on the route. We ask that you give way to pedestrians on the course.
St John Ambulance or another 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.
Race Location: Chasewater Country Park, Pool Lane, Burntwood, Staffordshire
Race HQ: The Innovation Centre, just off the A5
Chasewater Country Park is accessible by car and, of course, by bicycle and on foot. Parking is located at the site, so please follow the car park marshal instructions.
The Race HQ is located close to the Innovation Centre at Chasewater Country Park, just off the A5. You can cross the footbridge to the event but we would recommend arriving by car.
The Innovation Centre is located just off the A5 and is signposted onto Pool Road. Do not try and enter the park via the A5195 as this route is a single lane track blocked by a barrier at the end, which we do not have access to and turning is extremely difficult!
The nearest railway station is located at Cannock, but you will then need to get a taxi to the event.
