Starting under the finish arch, the route will send you running through a 2.5km loop of beautiful open parkland, taking in the views of the Weston Park house.
Head out on your bike for 4 laps of our speedy closed roads course. Take the time to look and you won’t miss some of the natural flora and fauna on offer as you exit the estate. Take a sharp left and think sprint speed for 1.5km, then it’s another sharp left back into the estate for stretches of tree lined roads. You’ll navigate past grand estate buildings before spotting transition. With four laps of the route, you can expect each one to be faster as you become more familiar with the roads and turns.
With your running shoes are on you’ll feel the full charm of the Weston Park estate. The route will initially send you running through open parkland, before turning you into a woodland garden. Here things get impressive; you’ll head on a 180degree run of a the stunning temple pool before darting around paths dwarfed by ancient trees. You’ll pop out the woodland to impressive views of the Weston Park house and head back through open parkland towards the finish line, don't start your sprint to early with still 1km to go!
