ok spoiler alert for those who like surprises .....
At mile 7 (ish) you leave the canel towpath and start very slowly climbing up. It's a gentle incline but I'd say about a mile long and goes on for way more than a mile mentally
you will have gone up steeper climbs but for me as I didn't know when it was finishing that was the trouble
then you start the trail run with lots of the roots of the trees painted pretty pink. The trail run isn't that uneven with no real killer bits. It's a great run in the woods & well sign posted.
Then after a few miles back to the towpath for about 3 miles I think
but as with all races you romanticize it after the event. And I could be remembering it all wrong.
I was knackered ! Got a PB though and a week after Hellrunner I was delighted.
alas this year my mantra wil be "just keep going"
