The 10k race starts at the football club and takes a route along the edge of historic Corsham, then gradually climbing up Park Lane to the peak of the course at 4km. Down Westwells to the water station at 5km before heading onto the country lanes and up to Neston at 6km. It is then mostly downhill to the finish, but watch out for the cheeky climb on Pound Pill at the 9km mark before heading back to the finish at the football club.
