All the above is included in your entry fee.
The longer route follows a fairly flat spin out from Chester to St Martins for the first stop before crossing the Welsh border and heading in to the hills, crossing to Llangollen, over the Horseshoe Pass then on to Ruthin for the second feed stop. At this point both routes will meet up before returning to Chester via a sepctacular climb and quiet lanes of north Wales.
