GBC ROUTE MAPS

At every step we are there for our runners and walkers; striving to make the event as enjoyable as we can. Part of the fun for events of this nature can be the navigation, here we provide clear, concise and detailed route maps to everyone taking part.  Less stress, more focus, more fun!   Click to see and download our new instructions, and GPS traces.  Modified routes and a brand new 5th courses introduced in 2015.

routeinstructions

For each course we have an information booklet of turn by turn instructions, and a variety of options to download and install on to your GPS watch or mobile phone devices (Garmin/Endomondo).

 

We also put markers out around the course (but these are secondary aids to getting around the course as they are at the mercy of the general public not moving these).

Here's how all the courses link together - with their respective route names and colours

 

- 88% of our runners think we have enough signs on our routes

- 90% rated our courses 'great' or 'excellent'

 

We pride ourselves on a well signed course, provide you with a map (and instructions on a trail route) and every morning we hold a briefing, you can download your route onto Garmin, Endomondo or GPX

 

HOWEVER - thee is a clue in our name - this is a 'challenge'

our routes are on rural roads, and sometimes across  fields, we sometimes have to deal with signs being removed or flooded roads.  

You will need to be alert and focus on the route throughout
