A really tough mainly off road Half Marathon .
The route starts from Town and climbs slowly for about half a mile, it then reaches a lengthy off road section at the top of which he route continues for around a quarter of a mile before entering Forestry rails which continue for several miles. This section is quite undulating but ascends to give some spectacular views of the surrounding countryside. Eventually it descends to reach a flatter section for around 3/4 of a mile .
Then it is once more a steady grassy climb of around half a mile before a downhill trail which reaches a roadway on which it continues for a short while. Then a right turn up a tarmacced road
which is a stiff climb for another half a mile.This section then becomes quite rocky for a short time before reentering forestry and descending across a stream for a further 3/4 of a mile.
This reaches another grassy hill winding through some interesting sections for around a mile or so . Finally left turn more grassy possibly muddy section to the finish line back n Town
