The start is on the gravel canal path opposite the Fountain Pub, Sandgate.
Follow the path toward Hythe all the way until you meet the road (Twiss Road).
Turn left at the road but do not cross it. Go over the bridge and turn left straight away on to a grassy dirt path. This runs back along the canal towards Folkestone.
Follow this until you come to the third bridge. Turn left over the bridge and then turn left back on to the gravel canal path.
Run the same loop again up towards Hythe and then back along the same path back towards Folkestone. This time when you cross the third bridge, turn right and follow the gravel path to the finish line.
The leg towards Hythe is all on gravel with a short tarmac stretch before you meet the road. The return leg is all on a grassy/dirt path which will be dry but is quite uneven in places. There will be marshalls on all the key junctions.
