The start of the race is beside the gate at the end of the promenade which then goes up the path in the middle of the Quarry, turn left at the top and follow the path towards the cliffs then left again and down the steep bank which leads past the start and along the prom past Gypsies Green and behind the fairground till you get to the pier.
Run left around the back of the boathouse then turn right and run along the pier towards the sea and right again down onto the beach path ( Donkey Path ) which leads eventually back onto the promenade next to the Sundial pub. Continue along the prom again till you get back to the start. You now run back up through the middle of the Quarry path again but at the crossroads this time run straight ahead and across the Leas until just after the bus stop on the coast road footpath.
Turn right onto the footpath and run past the Bamburgh Pub and down the bank into Gypsies Stadium where you run clockwise around the track to the Finish. Total distance is approx 4.26miles just short of 7k.
