The race is run in a time trial format with runners starting in waves from 8:30 - 12:00 based on their predicted finish time. The conditions underfoot vary from gravel tracks and un-kept trails to smooth pavement.

The route is largely flat with locks and bridges as the only inclines, the route includes the famous 'Coseley Tunnel' a 360m tunnel a memorable feature of the scenic course. The route features floating drink stations (canal barges) every 3 miles offering runners water and electrolyte.

The finish line is in the heart of Brindley Place in the centre of Birmingham, all finishers will receive a bespoke finishers medal, well stocked goody bag and the option of showers and massages nearby (tbc).
