The 5km Course
The course is exactly 5km in distance (mapped with Garmin strapped to small child on bicycle!)
The course is a 5 lap course and will be clearly marked with cones on the ground at 20 metre intervals. Keep on the outside of the cones so that the cones are closet to your left foot.
The 5km race will start and finish by the pavilion at the entrance at the top the park. Runners will run in an anti-clockwise direction around the top of the park and then down towards the bottom left hand corner of the park. From here they will run around the clump of trees in the bottom left hand corner and then continue in a diagonal direction back up towards the pavilion, through the avenue of trees and then diagonally down towards the bottom right hand corner of the park towards the train track.
From here they will run up towards the tennis court, around the fence towards the entrance in the top right hand corner of the park. From here they will run (inside the park) towards the pavilion and cross the start / finish line for their next lap.
At the end of their fifth and final lap, runners will cross the finish line through the funnel that will be marked next to the pavilion.
