From around 4km the elevation starts to kick in with a climb up Beacon Hill.

After passing Chequers on your left the route joins The Ridgeway and takes to the top of Coombe Hill where you turn right for a fast down hill finish to the pub.

In total the distance comes in at 11km with just over 200m of climbing - Good luck.

In order to maintain social distancing and keep this event safe we will be putting the following measures in place.

Reducing gatherings at the start/finish

The time trial is limited to a maximum of 48 people and these runners will be split into eight groups of 6. Each group will be given start time between 0900-1030 — You can choose a time preference when registering.

Runners are told their start time prior to the day and asked to stay away from the starting area until 10 minutes before.

Upon finishing, runners will be asked to sit/stand safely to one side - The pub beer garden will open at midday if you want a drink.

Maintaining social distancing on the trail

The route has been chosen to take advantage of the wider trails in the reserve.

Runners must under no circumstances overtake or pass another person unless they are confident of maintaining a minimum of 2 metres distance. If you cannot pass you must stop and wait.
