Not much of the course is in Stratford itself - you start near the canal and then run out to Milcote on undulating roads, before returning via the Stratford Greenway.
The second half of the route can get a muddy when wet, so something to bear in mind. It's a pleasant course though and I think I'd recommend it.
For those that use water in a race, I noticed that the water station on this one was using bottles. Finishers get a unique medal, a banana, and a bottle of water.
