The course

The course will be marked clearly with signs, tape and arrows. There will be marshals placed around the course in high visibility clothing. If at anytime you require assistance or first aid contact one of them and they will assist you. Obstacles will be placed throughout the course. There will be water hazards on the course around the River Avon.

The children’s 1km is all on the lawn area with marshals at each of the obstacles. Whilst the 1km route is not suitable for adults, some of the little ones may need some assistance. The course will be taped off, however adults can easily jog around the route cheering the runners on. If your little one needs assistance just pop under the tape to help.
