Course description:
The start line is in Electra Way adjacent to the Ramada Hotel. Runners make their way down towards the end of Electra Way, go once around the roundabout, make their way back up Electra Way to exit onto Crewe Road, heading towards the Mini garage. Turning left into Gateway, runners circumnavigate the industrial estate exiting onto Weston Road via Fourth Avenue. At the end of Weston Road the course turns left onto the mile-long straight of Weston Gate North back towards Crewe Green Roundabout, then turns left down Crewe Green Road back towards the Electra Way entrance where runners begin a second lap on the same route. On return from the second lap, runners enter Electra Way but immediately turn into Westmere Drive for the final 250m run to the finish line in front of Air Products offices.
