The race starts behind the train station and finishes under the historic arch in the heart of the town, the only surviving gate into what was once a walled town.

There are four main left turns on the course, the first of which is shortly after the start. Your excitement at starting the race will soon be tested as there is quite a long drag pretty much as soon as you make that first left.

There are a few more ups and downs along the way but it wouldn’t be considered a hilly course and look out for the very fast finish over the last kilometre.
