6km Route

The 6km route will hopefully encourage individuals new to the sport of running or who wish to walk a shorter distance, to commit to participating in the Calcutta Run.


10km Route

The modified 10km will enhance the safety of all runners and walkers, while making the route flatter by minimising hills. Hopefully this will make running the course faster and lots of personal bests will be broken on the day.
