Map of Course

From the start at a height of about 230 feet, the route follows the tarmac Kymin Road - almost level at first, and becoming pretty steep.  Approaching the Kymin Tower the course levels out before the summit at almost 850 feet. Stage times for the uphill section are recorded, and there are prizes for the 'King' and 'Queen' of the hill.  Passing the Kymin Tower, there is a brief chance to enjoy the spectacular views of Monmouth and the Welsh Mountains!


After descending across a field, the route crosses the main road where traffic will be stopped. It then follows forest roads for about 3 miles, briefly uphill and then mainly gently downhill through Highmeadow Woods – hopefully carpeted with bluebells by race day.  The route passes The Suck Stone (the largest detached boulder in Britain) and below the cliffs of Near Harkening Rock.

After the final descent to the side of the River Wye, the final 2½ miles are relatively flat.  It follows the track of the old Monmouth- Ross railway for a mile and then the tarmac Hadnock Road back to the finish at the MSSC.  The total distance is 7.1 miles.
