The start and finish will be at the Hungerford Rugby Club. The route takes runners around a loop of the triangle field before heading out towards the common. There, runners will be directed on a course taking in the beautiful Port Down Common before descending gently towards Templeton/Trinity Stud. It then follows a circular route around footpaths providing stunning views of Combe and of the countryside. The runners will then return via the common back to the Rugby Club.
