The race route is courtesy Corporation of the City of London, Ashtead Rangers Office. The route starts and finishes in the same place. Canter down from the start to the corner of the field, go over the little bridge and then take the second left. The first km is all gently up, on rough ground, with plenty of twists and turns, and then there is a steep hill down to what we call the Star turn (because it is handy for the Star pub), also known as the Epsom Gap. Then there is the classic 'roller coaster' top section of the course, with the woods on your right, and open fields and nice views to your left. This section is undulating. Finally (as the field on your left comes to an end) you take a right hand turn off the bridleway and onto a rough and boggy footpath (deep joy!) for about 200m until you come back out onto another bridleway - trend right. Run along the main path for another 1km until you come to the first right hand turn (it's mostly flat/down hill for the next 500m) until the half way point and water station. Reverse your course, keeping left at all times and giving way to faster runners. The hills you came down on your way out will become more obvious on your way back. Finish with style and elation, to the plaudits of your family and friends!
