- Route Description:
- The race starts out the forest path from the Christ the King statue. At the first junction take a sharp left, from here keep on the right at the next junction up over the hill.

Keep left here and run down to the end of the car park turn left again and run out this forest path to the junction where you first turned left only turn sharp right this time and this will bring you back to the statue and finish.

You need to have done 2 non-running volunteer roles in a calendar year to qualify for end of year prize
Check with race director if they have a need for people volunteering and running. Race directors need a minimum number of people available throughout the race to make the race work so non-running volunteers are preferable. While it can be helpful, volunteering in a volunteer and race capacity does not count towards qualifying for end of year prize
