Courses:  Orange (medium) 2km actual approx, Short Green (hard) 3km actual approx.  There are too many paths to be able to provide an easy Yellow course but the Orange is on the easy side of medium.

Pre-entries:  Entries have now closed, email Lindsey (see below) if you haven’t entered but want to check for spare maps.

Terrain: A maze of paths and small clearings amongst a huge area of rhododendrons. Some paths are muddy in all weathers, wear suitable footwear.  The courses have been planned so that deep ditches can be crossed at a bridge – this is recommended.  Smaller ditches can be crossed anywhere.  Update 29/1/24:  you are going to get very muddy feet, bring spare socks and shoes.

Safety:  The car park will be busy, please take care especially if you have young children with you.  You may encounter walkers, dogs, horses – be courteous and pass quietly.  Anyone with a relevent medical condition which we should be aware of may leave a sealed envelope with the details on it with Organiser which they can retrieve unopened after they Finish.
