The Route: Runners will start at Rotherby Lodge Farm down the access track and left onto Gaddesby Lane towards Gaddesby. Upon entering the village, the route goes down Park Hill to the T-Junction with Ashby Road where the route turns left. At the edge of Ashby Folville the route turns left onto Ashby Folville Road and then immediate left again over the bridge. The route then continues along Ashby Folville Road up the hill to the junction with Pasture Lane where it turns left onto Pasture Lane. At the end of Pasture Lane in Gaddesby the route turns right onto Rotherby Lane, and then follows the outward route in reverse back to Rotherby Lodge Farm. Upon arriving at the farm, the route turns right onto the farm access track to the finish.

Access to the race start/finish field is from Gaddesby Lane, with exit from the site via a track direct onto the A607. Runners are requested to avoid the A607/Gaddesby Lane junction on arrival due to the risk of traffic build up. As Gaddesby Lane/Rotherby Lane will be closed for the first 2 miles of the race, all runners are requested to arrive at the site 30mins before the start to avoid the risk of being unable to start the race.

Due to confusion at earlier league races, no headphones of any type are be permitted on the course.
