Course Description

The course starts and finishes in Regatta Meadow, Riverside Park, St Neots, PE19 7SR.  It follows the Great Ouse upstream taking in the parks of St Neots and crossing the river four times in total.  The course is a mixture of off road, pathways, and a small section of road.


The course is best decribed as a summer cross country.  There are some twists and turns, some narrow sections, and a river crossing at the Rivermill lock with four steps to negotiate.  It might not be the fastest 10K course on the calendar, but our aim was to make it the most scenic.  There are however absolutely no hills so there might just be the potential for a PB for some runners!


Some of the race takes place on unsurfaced pathways which will become muddly and slippery if conditions are wet on race day.  There might also be trip hazards such as roots and uneven ground. Runners should therefore take care and are reminded that they enter at their own risk.


There are also some steps to negotiate at the river crossing by the Rivermill lock, for this reason the course is not suitable for wheelchairs or hand bikes.
