Starting on the upper prom outside the Beach Leisure Centre the race first heads north on the upper prom until the turn at Donmouth where the course drops onto the lower prom and heads south all the way to Footdee(Fittie to us locals). Returning to the upper prom the course then heads north once again all the way to Donmouth where the course drops onto the lower prom and the final push to the finish around the Beach Leisure Centre. It is a fast and flat course but can be affected by wind!

There are 2 water stops on route at approximately 2 and 4 miles.
