The first half of the 10K is mostly flat as it incorporates the same route as the 5K. The second half includes more challenging narrow trails, tree routes and more hills. 10K participants have special access to the old preserved oak wood, along the river Esk to the meeting of the waters, over the foot bridge, and back towards bluebell grove. Eventually 10K entrants will finish by once more running up heartbreak hill, along Montague bridge and into the finish.

The 5K route is mostly flat and very scenic taking in meadows, forest tracks and the amazing bluebell grove along the River Esk near the finish. Prepare for a heartbreak hill near the finish - 5K participants will only have to deal this small hill once to get back up onto Montague Bridge about 100metres from the finish. It's called heartbreak hill given its close proximity to the finishing line!
