The normal route of the Exbury 10K is a flat and fast circular course run over country lanes which starts and finishes at Exbury Gardens, taking in spectacular views of the Solent and includes approximately 500 metres of beach front running on the foreshore path at Lepe Beach. Note the start is at an altitude of about 20 metres. The course goes gently down to Lepe which is at sea level and then back up to the start so maybe it is not exactly flat but it's pretty flat.
For 2014, 2015 and we had to reduce the distance to 5 miles becuase of storm damage to the beach path. We hope that will be repaired soon and that we can go back to our previous 10K course for 2017.
