The race starts at the old Takeley Railway Station and continues along the beautiful Flitch Way.
The course is slightly undulating, mostly on the Flitch Way (a firm surface suitable for road-running shoes) and on grass paths. There are water stations at the 2.5k and 7.5k mark.
The Takeley 10k has a 90% off-road route. Approximately 1km of the route is on road and this leads to the finish at the Silver Jubilee Hall.
