The ColyTEN is a new 10 mile multi terrain race taking place on Sunday 15th October. There is also a 1 mile fun run.
Race starts beside the river Coly, a 5 minute walk from race HQ. After the first footpath river section there is a short road run to Chantry Bridge where there you head off road to pick up the footpath again. You then cross the river and begin a steep ascent through Ox Woods. On reaching the summit there is a short descent down Jobbles Lane before entering Morganhayes woodland. This is an undulating section of woodland paths with a couple of steep climbs and a short road section.

On entering the playing field there is a lap of the field to the finish where you will receive your finishers buff and a well earned drink and flapjack.
