The race starts in the field [Start] to the North of the Clubhouse along the edge of the field to [1], where the runners exit the field,
Note that if there is a high number of runners in the race, we will add a loop in the field to avoid congestion at points [1] and [4]. This loop will go from the start to points [15],[16],[17] then [1].

Then left onto the path [1A] and then almost immediately right into the field [2] straight down this field, past the cricket pitch [3] and out of this field at [4] sharp right, joining the Meanwood Valley Trail [5].

Then through two open areas [6],[6A] to the cross paths at point [7] NB this is very near point [1] so a good vantage point for spectators.
Note that for the youngest age group, parents may join the race at [7] to run with their child.

Then on a good path to Stairfoot Lane [8], up through the woods [9,10] and then along a field [11,12,13,14]

This leads back into the start/finish field at [15]

All runners do two sides of the field [16,17]

At point [17] the one mile runners turn left to the finish, the two mile runners go out through the gate for a second lap

The route will be well marshalled and marked throughout.
