2012 update - the course has changed since I last did it, to introduce an extra hill on each lap just before the main hill known as the saucer. This is a tough cooky, with fiour laps for men and I think two for senior women. After the saucer there is a long descent with a muddy section at the bottom.
The race parking and actual race start can be quite hard to find (Witton Park is huge), so leave plenty of time to get there.
