Turn left and run on the cycleway, over the railway bridge, turn left on to Ellers Road and run up to Bawtry Road. You cross 3 estate roads so give way to drivers. Turn left on to Bawtry Road, and then turn left on to St Augustine’s Road and run to the bottom where you started.

Complete a second lap, the same as the first.

To finish, after you complete your second lap run along St Michael’s Road, turn left and run along side the school field. Now TURN RIGHT and run to Lakeside Boulevard, when you reach Lakeside Boulevard you are finished.
