Runners at this summer’s Ramathon will encounter a modified route from the 2015 course. The race, scheduled for Sunday 5 June, has seen its popularity soar since returning in 2014, making it a stand out race on the Midlands circuit.
The modification to the course will see runners leave – as with previous years – from the iPro Stadium and progress to the city centre, through Market Place and past the cathedral before heading back down along London Road.
The scenic Elvaston Castle Country Park will once again be a key feature of the route, with organisers seeking authorisation to close the river paths for public use to ensure that they are kept clear for runners participating in the race.
The new city centre section has been included to make the most of Derby’s key landmarks and will provide an enhanced race experience both for previous Ramathon runners. A detailed map for the 2016 race is available here.
Ramathon's race director, Richard Kay said: "We think this year’s race will truly show off Derby in all its glory - to runners, spectators and the local businesses that will be taking part on race day. We expect that 2016’s event will really help to put the city on the map!”
