NOTE: This is the 2014 route. It is not the current route.

Please note, this route may be subject to small changes. The final route will be released nearer the event and is subject to several factors, including a few that out outside our control including road surfacing works and hedge cutting (or lack of!). We will not be releasing a GPX until the route is finalised, but we realise that those entered want to know the climbs included.
