The course is a 10k multi-terrain course, starting from, and ending at Escrick Village Green.
The first and last km are mostly on tarmac, the rest of the race is mostly bridleways through the Escrick Park Estate. Depending on weather conditions, there can be some muddy sections through the woods.
We have to make small changes to the course from time to time through the woods due to varying condition of tracks. The exact route will be finalised a few weeks before the course when track conditions are known.

The course is 10k when measured by a bicycle wheel. GPS measurements are quite variable and generally underestimate the course length – we believe this is due to how GPS systems tend to average and smooth their tracks, resulting in perceived short-cuts around the many corners in the course.

The 2019 course is expected to be largely the same, with minor alterations through the woods to reflect the condition of paths.
