The race is held along quiet, scenic country roads of the South Hams. The start is on Embankment Road by the side of the model railway station which is only 200m from the recreation ground and registration. From the start the course goes up through the main street of Kingsbridge and quickly moves into the countryside climbing to a ridge which is the highest part of the course. At halfway there is a water station. The course then descends down a steep, picturesque route taking the runners back to Kingsbridge town. At the foot of the road into town they turn sharp left and run along a road parallel to the start. The finish is on the right hand side at the recreation park. The start and finish are shown on the Car parking map and represented by a circles S and F.
