The route isn’t known for being flat! Runners head out of town and are soon faced with the first climb along Axe Edge. You will see Chrome Hill, Dowel Dale, Park House Hill and others as you run down country lanes before taking on a couple more climbs before crossing the finish line. Total ascent is around 1508ft/460m.
