The route has changed for 2018 but is still fairly flat with only small inclines. The start and finish are on the athletics track. From the start you follow the access road to the main B3151, at the end of the access road you make a right turn and follow the road all the way to Ilchester. Turn left and keep following the road into Limington. Follow the winding country road through the quaint village of Ashington and on towards Mudford. As you come to the junction with the A359 at Mudford you turn left, and after a short trip along the A359 you turn left again back onto the quiet country roads, and head towards Chilton Cantelo. At the school turn right and follow the road until the first turning on your left, which you take. Follow this road all the way to the staggered crossroads, at which point you will turn left. A short way down the road you will take a right turn and follow the road all the way along through the hamlet of Urgashay and end up on the B3151 where you turn left and head towards the Camp and the start of the second lap. On the second lap, you turn left back in towards the athletics track and the finish line.
