Sprint Series 5 will be at Gala Policies.
Sprint race plus a Yellow.
Parking near Gala Swimming Pool, or Balmoral Avenue.
Map scale is 1:5000. The Policies are usually quite runnable, but the undergrowth is suddenly shooting up, so take care and wear good leg protection. You are likely to meet many dog walkers, so please treat them with mutual respect.
The Finish is near a pond, and young participants should be reminded to keep well clear of the water. Also, as the area is very close to the town, there may be broken glass and debris – so again please take care.
Otherwise, Gala Policies is an interesting small area with a good network of paths and is well contained between the Housing, open fields and Gala Academy.
