The housing crisis isn't about houses - it's about people. The lack of safe, secure and affordable homes is affecting people across the whole country. More than three million families could be one paycheck away from losing their home
The course is flat and mainly on paths with the exception of one section that is stone/trail. The 5k is one lap, the 10k two and the half marathon is 4 laps with one additional 1.1k section.
Buggies are ok, the course is wheelchair friendly (just note the one section that is on trail)
