Event Overview: This popular event offers an exclusive opportunity to test your stamina and endurance at one of the iconic venues from London 2012 - the Mountain Bike Circuit used in both the men's and women's MTB Olympic races. The race offers the unique chance to run this challenging course, but expect hills, more hills, mud and more mud! This race organised on behalf of Castle Point Joggers by Nice Work. Course Details: This is a challenging but hugely enjoyable off-road 10k using part of the Olympic Mountain Bike Circuit, plus footpaths and trails set within the grounds of Hadleigh Castle, which proved a tough test for the Olympians in the summer of 2012. Due to the time of year, the course is likely to be muddy! It is a two lap route and you can expect some tough inclines along with sections that use the grass fields and footpaths surrounding the park. There are also a couple of short sections with rocks and boulders, as used in the Olympic MTB races, to provide an extra challenge.
