Introduction to this course
The course measures 5.5km long from point to point, but you will run a bit further than this, dependant on your route. The navigation should be fairly straightforward, but sometimes the GPS can take a while to keep up with you, so ensure you have ‘Display my location’ ticked in the settings – and you can check exactly where you are at all times.
Remember, this is a ‘fun’ event!
