The route takes runners from Wolverhampton to Birmingham along the canal tow-paths. The surface of the tow-paths varies along the course from gravel, to grass/trail to paved so please wear appropriate footwear for multi - terrains. The route is a public right of way and therefore open to other users, please be courteous and considerate to anyone you encounter. The towpath is quite narrow in places so please run in single file away from the canal, if you need to overtake simply shout a friendly warning and overtake on canal side, if someone asks to pass you please move away from the canal to allow them to overtake. Please remember that the runner you are passing will be focused on their own race so you may need to call a few times, it is up to you to choose appropriate passing places. The course will have marshals at approx. every mile, clear directional signs and mile markers.
