Sunday 1st July is the date for the fifth Bassingbourn 'Brainstrust' Half Marathon and the ninth event of Fit4thechallenge. If you have ran any of those races then you will know what to expect. If not, here is the low down - my courses always include off road sections, beautiful scenery, sometimes a bit of mud and also the odd hill, which remember goes up as well as down. The course consists of 12.1 miles on road and 1 mile off road along a grass track. The course has been measured by GPS only.
