5km, 10km & Half Marathon
The race start on the village green opposite the Abbey. The route heads out of town and over some lovely stone bridges over the river Avon. There is a slight rise before the first turn coming in at 1km. Beautiful country roads wind round to the hamlet of Reybridge with lovely thatched roofed buildings lining the narrow streets.
Once through Reybridge the run will come back round to Lacock itself and run along the historic side streets as well as up and back along the main high street. This is a 1 lap course for the 5km, 2 laps for the 10km and 3 larger laps for the Half Marathon which has a larger looped section at Reybridge to ensure an accurate distance.
5km & 10km
The 5km is a 1 lap course, about 100m over the official 5,000m distance so is not a certified course. It has just 31m of elevation change which means it is still a super fast course. The 10km is officially certified accurate, course number 18/189. It has a turn around point in the start/finish field, shy of the finish line itself and has just over 60m of height change.
The Half Marathon route is a 3 lap route. The core part of the route is the same as the 5km/10km loop. Mid way round, the Half Marathon branches off to complete an extended loop of the Lackham College campus, including a short out and back at the far end to get this route up to distance. It is an officially certified course, number 18/288 and has less than 100m elevation change.
