Description: 

The course is 2 and a half laps in an anti-clockwise direction. It starts to the west of the Celebration Suite at the start of the avenue of trees. Head along the avenue and then turn left at the end and head downhill for 250m towards the lake. When you reach the lake carefully cross the railway line and turn right and follow the path around the lake and across the pontoon bridge. At the end of the bridge turn left and follow the path alongside the lake. Follow the path to the right of the boathouse, carefully cross the railway line and then go left towards the children’s play area. Before you reach the play area turn left and go straight on over the bridge and up the hill for 250m towards the Celebration Suite. When you reach the Suite turn left and follow the building, skirting the car park on the grass before rejoining the avenue of trees where you started for lap two. Next time around cross the start line once more and turn left at the end of the avenue and head down towards the lake. Approximately 200 metres on the left follow the path which leads to the finish. Paths are hard standing or compacted stone. Take care when crossing the railway lines and watch out for wild fowl!
