This multi terrain 5/10k will start from near the foot of Brean Down, ascending straight into the steep hill to the top. You will then be taken up and over the challenging undulating hills with a gradual descent to the fort which is the turnaround point. The route will then take you along the adjacent side and back down to the finish. The 10k runners will then take on this enduring route for a 2nd time. There will be a half way water/feed station just past the 5k point.
The route will again be marked out with eco – friendly white temporary spray paint arrows and orange way marker flags throughout the course, ensuring that Brean Down is preserved and not damaged in any way.
