If you read the details on the web page it says
"With the start and finish at the Julie Rose Stadium, this event will have the whole family supporting. The event is open to runners of all abilities and suitable to new runners who would like to give a different distance a go before Christmas. You can also run for a charity of your choice."
So I guess it is beginner friendly
Hmm not to far from me...might consider doing this although I don't particularly like multi lap races.
