Route

The race will be the same as last year with the start and finish at the Tintern end of the old railway bridge (above), next to the Abbey Mill (NP16 6SE). The race crosses the bridge and then follows the river for about a mile, along the course of the old railway line. It then climbs up through the woods to reach Offa’s Dyke path, going north along the path for a mile or so. At the 3 way post the route goes down past HAPPA horse sanctuary, and then turns left back along the lane to rejoin the outward route and back to finish at the same point as the start.

The course distance is approximately 6 miles with a height gain of around 260m (850 feet).
