The race starts at 9am on July 13, finishing in Gloucester Park and followed by Gloucester’s Family Fun Day. The course is designed with sight seeing in mind and therefore has the odd twist and turn. However, it is predominantly flat and for most runners this is a potential PB course.

The aim of the route is to showcase Gloucester so it passes the Cathedral, through the Docks and Gloucester Quays and there is a run along the canal towpath. Given the intention of taking in the sites it does twist in the odd place, but is still a fast course. The event is very much a community event re-established by Davies and Partners Solicitors following the decision of commercial organisers not to continue with it. Any surplus will be given to Gloucester charities.
