FATMAP difficulty grade
An undulating 5km course on tarmac paths within Heaton Park. Starting in the centre of the park, the first 2km consists of a flat section around the Heaton Park lake.
Between 2 and 3 kilometres, some challenging hills take you to outside Heaton Hall with spectacular views of Manchester.
A loop through the forest area behind the hall follows, before a welcome downhill section to complete the lap. The 5k is 1 lap, 10k is 2 laps, and Half Marathon is 4 laps with an additional out and back section at the start.
The summer 10mi route is 3 laps.
