This race follows a loop through pretty Northamptonshire countryside on paths, tracks and some minor roads.  It makes for fast running in the main, although it’s a bit hillier than you’d expect (if you’re a northerner).  It passes a number of big estates and fine old farms, and the start/finish is in the grounds of Lamport Hall, which is very grand indeed.
