Peter, We have a certificate of course accuracy from an official course measurer that has the distance as 13 miles 197 yards. Some of my "techy" colleagues believe that it is the underpasses (of which there are a number) that cause the distortion of distance on Garmins. I spoke to a number of people afterwards and watches varied between 13.05 miles and 13.8 miles!

The entry fee of £22 remains very competitive - not many races of similar cost offer a goody bag, bespoke medal and technical t shirt as part of the entry fee. Our costs continue to rise year on year, and we do pass a bit of that onto the runners. However Runners World Readers awarded the race 99% for Organisation and 94% for Value in 2014.
