There will be ascending mile marks on the course.
There will be three water stops on the route, at approximately 4 (Bernhervie), 6.5 (before Chapel of Garioch) and 10.5 miles (Dubstone), stocked with small bottles supplied by Fisher Offshore of Oldmeldrum.
There will also be water available at the Finish.
Please note the eGroup Half Marathon course may not be supported after three hours.
The eGroup Half Marathon will share the same route as the 10K until the turn-off at Polinar Dam. At that point, eGroup Half Marathon runners will take a left towards Burnhervie. They will then proceed to Chapel of Garioch, enjoying spectacular views of Bennachie along the way. A short downhill section then follows, before the now infamous climb at Dubstone. After Dubstone, runners will continue down Blackhall Road until taking a left at John Sorrie Drive. They will follow John Sorrie Drive all the way around until they return to Blackhall Road, take a left at the roundabout and return directly to the Garioch Sports Centre via the underpass and Burghmuir Drive.
