Overton 5

Hi folks, I registered for this race quite late (on Friday by post and have already received my race pack - very impressive) and I notice that the race is going to be run in the opposite direction this year to previous years.  I have not run the race before but know that it is described as undulating, and that previously there was a nice downhill section in the last mile.  For those of you who have run/know the course, do you think that this will make the course more difficult or will it be more or less the same?  Thank you.


  • I live in the village, and ran the course for the first time this morning.  I don't think it makes much difference which way the course is run - the new way has a slightly steeper uphill section for the first mile, whereas the old way you didn't hit the big hill until about a mile into the course.
