5K RUN/WALK

2017 Results – 5K

A 10k course that is challenging, to be sure. It’s not the hardest thing you’ve ever done (probably) but you’ll be breathing hard.

HALF MARATHON

A Half Marathon course that makes people swear. A lot. We’re not going to sugar-coat that one! Absolutely perfect for anyone up for a hilly challenge.
