The race comprises a ten mile loop set in a scenic, rural location, run mainly on ‘B’ and ‘C’ class roads, and unclassified routes. Starting at the west of Rosewell village, the route follows a gentle incline to Gourlaw Farm before dropping down to the bottom of Roslin Glen at two miles, followed by a steep rise for 400 metres, after which it is nice and easy before dropping to the four mile mark in the village of Auchendinny.  There is a climb between the fifth and six miles thereafter, apart from a small hump at around seven miles, the route is generally downhill into Rosewell. Note that this year, there is a small change to the route over the final mile which now passes Whitehill House.

Ferguson Park is a short walk from the finishing area where changing, showering and toilet facilities will be available. Water (cups) will be provided at six miles and at the finish (bottles) and free refreshments will be served to all finishers at Whitehill Welfare FC. Individual and team will be presented during the finishers buffet.
