|Lap 1||Lap 2|
The bike route heads out from the North West exit from Grosvenor park onto Little St John Street before heading down Park Street and Duke Street onto Old Dee Bridge. All the roads till you get over the bridge are closed to traffic. Once over the bridge you head out on Eaton Road towards Eccleston.
Once in Eccleston turn right and head down Rake Lane turning left onto the B5445 Wrexham Road, continue for 6.5km through Pulford, Lavister and Rossett. There is a small section of 20mph, please stick to the speed limit. There is a pedestrian crossing in Rossett which will hopefully be turned off, if not we will have marshals minimising the use of the crossing but if they are on red you must stop and you will be credited with your stopping time.
At 13km you start to go up Marford Hill, about halfway up turn left onto Hosely Lane and proceed to Borras Head following the road to the right down to the A5156.
Follow the A5156 onto the A534 for about 2km then turn right at the roundabout (you will need to be in the right hand lane of the dual carridgeway) onto the Wrecsam Industiral Estate. Once in the estate, take the left turn at the first roundabout and follow the road. At the T Junction turn right and continue to follow the road round the the first roundabout where you turn left and head back to the main road. Turn right onto the main A534 on exiting the estate.
Continue for about 6km on the A534 before turning left onto Sibbersfield Lane B5130. There is a right turn 2km from turning off the main road which will be policed to give you right of way. Proceed for 10km through Churton and Aldford before arriving in Huntingdon, there are several pedestrian crossings which should be turned off.
Continue up Sandy Lane and onto Boughton, one lane will be closed to traffic along Boughton all the way back to the North East entrance to Grosvenor Park.
Do not enter the park on your first lap, but continue past the park (drink station is as you pass the park before you rejoin the route for the second lap). Take care as other athletes will be exiting transition as you pass.
The drinks station will have bottles of High5 2:1 in the first zone and water in the second zone.
On your second lap you do not do a loop of the Wrecam Industrial Estate
Due to us having to open the roads in the City Centre the following Cut off times are in operation:
Lap 1 of the bike must be completed by 10:30, anyone not completing the first lap by this time will be directed into transition where they may complete the run if they wish.
Lap 2 of the run must be completed by 14:15, anyone not on their final lap by this time will be directed to the finish line.
Unfortunately these cut off times are necessary to allow the roads to re-open on time.
No refunds will be given to people who do not make the cut offs.
