Fast, slightly downhill, start for the first mile or so. But what goes down must come up and there are a couple of quite tough climbs further along. Fairly smooth fine roads for the most part. The course has been trimmed slightly for this year to bring it closer to 10K.
There is a water station approx halfway through the 10K stocked with water and jelly babies.
