The Half Marathon route presents a tough challenge for experienced distance runners and a rewarding route for walkers. This event is open to ages 17 and over. It is a multi-terrain 13.1 mile (21k approx.) route using public footpaths and sections of the Cheltenham Circular Footpath, Cotswold Way and Winchcombe Way.
A multi-terrain off-road 10K (6 mile approx.) route using public footpaths and quiet village lanes. The terrain is mostly flat with some gentle inclines.Starting at Cheltenham Racecourse, the route initially runs alongside the GWR steam railway before entering the large field just to the north of the racecourse. After a loop around the field, it follows public footpaths north towards Southam and the Ellenborough Park Hotel, before heading south again towards and through Prestbury village. Back into fields again for a short stretch before joining the public footpath around the outside of the racecourse and returning to the finish at the event village.
An easy and enjoyable route for walkers and for runners with some experience of completing a 10k course.
A multi-terrain off-road 5k (3 mile approx.) route using public footpaths and fields around the racecourse. The terrain is mostly flat with a short climb towards the end. Starting at Cheltenham Racecourse, the route initially runs alongside the GWR steam railway before entering the large field just to the north of the racecourse. After a loop around the field, it follows the public footpath around the outside of the racecourse and returns to the finish at the event village. An easy and fairly level 5k route with the added challenge of gates and stiles to cross, suitable for walkers and novice runners, and ideal for any young people competing in school cross country events. Please note that parts of this route are shared with other Challenge events and members of the public.
LOADS of fun for all the family on Fathers Day.
