For the Full Course, the run is approximately 10km for Run 1 and 5k for Run 2. The run for the Short Course is approximately 5km for Run 1, and 2.5km for Run 2. The runs for both courses are tough and hilly, including sections of road and off road terrain. For Junior Storm, the run is approximately 800m, around the Castle.
The Full Course bike route is a challenging 33km with enough undulation to rival the hardest bike courses in the UK. This course includes approximately 500m of elevation and takes you on a route from Shropshire, into Herefordshire and back into Shropshire to finish back at transition. The climbing comes in two main sections, including a 7km climb over Fiddlers Elbow and nearing the end of the ride, you climb through Mortimer Forest before a fast, short descent off Whitcliffe common. The Short Course bike route is approximately 22km, initially taking the same route as the Full Course, cutting through towards Downton on the Rock before re-joining the Full Course for the final climb from Pipe Aston.
