Details
The course follows single track and wide double track winding through Belmead's forests and fields. The majority of the trail surface is packed dirt but runners can also expect to encounter crushed gravel and short sections of asphalt (less than a 1/4 mile in total). The trails are typically traveled by horses so there will be (especially in wet areas) deep hoof prints which should be traversed carefully. Runners will encounter quite a few technical sections (roots, switchbacks, uneven terrain, mud, stream crossings, loose stones. etc...) but there are some non-technical sections for runners to enable you to stretch your legs.

A note to 20k runners...There will be two loops to complete the course. 20k runners will follow the 10k route for the first loop and head back out for the second loop. Although the second loop does share some of the 10k route, runners will be able to see a lot more of the property and won't feel as if they ran the same loop twice.
Staffed aid stations will be along the course and will be stocked with water. The start/finish line will have light snacks and water.
