The route starts at the main starting line of the track and goes clockwise for 300m around the track then exists the track to run to the right to a path through the trees. Once through the trees runners take an immediate right to go across the field to the path that leads to Tamar Close. From Tamar Close runners turn right and run up Drummond Way and at the end of Drummond Way take the new path through the fences then turn left to go to Birtles Road. Runners turn right to go up Birtles Road then bear right again to go up Whirley Road. Coming down from the top of Whirley Road runners turn right onto Wrigley Lane and run all the way to Birtles Lane. At Birtles Lanes runners take a sharp left to start a small loop back by taking Birtles Lane then to a left onto Cross Lane which then takes you back to Wrigley Lane were you then turn right. Runners now follow back the route they came out on by continuing on Wrigley Lane, then taking a left onto Whirley Road, then left onto Birtles Road, then left back onto the path leading to Drummond Way, right down Drummond Way to a left into Tamar Close. Finally take the path at the end of Tamar Close to then run back across the field through the trees and back to the track to turn right for a 100m finish on the track.
