Planners notes (important !): All fences and walls should only be crossed at gateways. Any gates which may be used on the courses will be open, so if you need to open a gate you would be going the wrong way.

To get from the finish back to the start/parking field will involve a 0.4km walk up the road, although quiet please be aware of any traffic and any minors should be accompanied. Also be aware this area is popular with dog walkers and horse riders and there may be a need to give them a wide berth.
