Course Maps

The run is a simple out and back course along the esplanade at Seaford which is flat and fast. The vast majority of the course is on good level tarmac. A very small part of the course near to the finish line is gravel and then grass. Please take care on the run course as there may be pedestrians.

When you have completed the required lap(s) filter into the finish alley on Martello Field and through to the finish line (signed and clearly visible). There is a feed station on the run course at approximately every 1.5 miles and at the finish line serving High5 sports drink and water.
