Race HQ is at the Ranger Centre in Birchwood Forest Park.
There are basic changing rooms, showers & toilets at the Ranger Centre. These facilities are a bit limited as they are only meant for two football teams.
We are unable to offer facilities to store bags or valuables.
The race follows a mostly traffic free course along parkland paths, and it is fairly flat with just two small hills approaching footbridges, one of which the route crosses.
The route was re-measured by an accredited course measurer in 2015.
The start is a little under ½ mile walk from Race HQ, under the subway into Birchwood Brook Park. The finish is on the opposite side of the field from Race HQ.
The route follows the main footpath through Birchwood Brook Park, before passing Birchwood railway station and going up Birchwood Boulevard (the only road section of the course). It then joins Oakwood Gate path, passing the pond and the walled garden before crossing Oakwood Gate footbridge and following the main path back past the Fire Station to the finish in the Forest Park.
