Route

Details

The route is 18km on undulating trails to the west side of Goring following the ridgeway path.

We will be running on a mixture country lanes, dirt trail and woodland, all good quality and not too technical.

The route has ~350 metres of elevation, with a good climb near the beginning which gives some great views across the countryside and a epic descent at the finish taking us down and across the Thames.
