    Just wondering if anyone can shed some light on the 3mile route? Has it got gradient? How much (a hill or slope)? Is it even terrain or covered in pot holes and constant ups and down etc?

    Despite living in London where I live the roads are actually rather ‘hilly’ which I’ve never thought about before because I’ve got so used to it. Recently I done 3mile run on a completely flat even track as I was having a off day and had to drag myself out the door (something is better then nothing logic) I managed a easy sub 20mins without too much effort. So now I’m curious as to what to expect terrain wise when I’m finally down there. (Obviously I’m not expecting a lovely flat running track)

    Thanks!

    The BFT route is pretty much all flat (bit of up and down but nothing you'll notice physically) along a solid country road, maybe the odd pothole but its in great condition from memory. Ideal for the test. If you can train with hills do it as it'll make your time faster down there.

    It's the flattest bit of road in that part of Devon! Biggest problem you'll have is meeting Jan on his tractor!

    stay away from the edges of the route (road) as they are a bit beaten up to be fair , and they are on a camber (both sides) , but if your running say one foot in from the edge you should be fine ,half way point gets a bit muddy and wet , but apart from that it,s a decent route.
