A flat Half Marathon in Devon? Impossible you say!
Well here it is the Grand Canal Canter along the picturesque Grand Western Canal, your choice of two separate Half Marathons.
The route starts at Tiverton Canal Basin and heads along the canal paths for 6.6 miles to Sampford Peverell, here is the turn around point, where you head back to Tiverton and for the Half Marathon the finish line, for the Marathon runners you repeat the course a second time.
There is less than 90ft of ascent in the Half Marathon, making it a flat course along hard packed gravel canal paths.
Bespoke "Grand Canal Canter" medal for all finishers.
To spread the runners out along the route and minimise the number of runners on the route at any one time, we are holding two Half Marathon sessions on the day, the first at 8amhas a 2hr 15 minute cut off time, the second at 10.45am has a 3hr 15 minute cut off time, the results of the two half marathons will be combined for the final results.
This is the 10.45am Half Marathon
Half Marathon 2 (Cut off time 3hrs 15 minutes) - waved starts from 10.45am to 11am
There are just 50 runners allowed in each session.
The Grand Canal Canter is a Cupless event, all runners must bring and carry either a water bottle, cup or running backpack with them. There are water containers to top up your water or fill your cup approx every 3 miles, but there are no cups provided.
