The race starts and finishes in the show ground with live commentary over the show PA. The route goes out across the event field and through a gate at the top. After a traverse of another field, the route starts heading up through steep farmland. A stile from this leads to the open fell. At this time of year the bracken is high and a small path zig zags up through it, partly on an old broken down wall. A final push over heather and bilberry takes you onto Offa's Dyke path. South along this leads to a path heading back towards Llanthony. The path is rocky in places. A stile into the farmland brings a steep and often rutted steep descent back to the event field.

The majority of the route is marked and some attempt is made to clear a way through the head high bracken on the ascent.
