The start and finish area will again be under the famous Airship hangar in Farnborough Business Park, which now stands as a monument to the past as a great piece of industrial art.
From the hangar the route takes you past the end of the runway and, with an improvement to the route in 2017, will continue adjacent to the runway emerging next to the Air Accident Investigation Centre. From here the route returns to the Business Park and passes the start at approx 5 miles.
The route will then continue through the Business Park and out on a flat road circuit through the rural area that surrounds the airfield. Gone are the multiple laps of the Business Park at the start, the climb up to Queens Roundabout, the gravel section through Southwood Woodland Park and the gravel tow path alongside the canal.
