We have chosen a later date for our third outing at Dyrham Park. The 2.5/5k and 10k runners will start at Whitefields again before entering the Estate and running over to the far side of Park. The 5k is one lap, the 10k a 2 lap route. The course is generally flat/undulating but there are a few cheeky hills thrown in. One (now named ‘The Hill’) in particular being classed as a mountain by many of our 2016 event runners.
The 2.5k, 1k and 50m races will be held on flat, level ground.
The 5k and 10k races will be timed.
The route will be fully marshalled and marked out with run route arrow signs and orange flag markers.
There will be two water stations on the course and the finishers table will have our usual treats including fruit, sweets and cake!
Everyone will get a medal for finishing (including the under 5’s free 50m dash)
There will be 10k prizes for the following categories:
