An exciting and exhilarating off road, 10/5k multi-terrain course for the more experienced runner. It begins within the idyllic grounds of Old Down Country Park before heading out for a superb 1.5 mile woodland section which can become very muddy and challenging!! The course then takes in some fantastic open space before heading back into the woods for an uphill section leading back into the park.
