Lindsey Knox

The 2nd sprint is at Gordon Community Woodland.  Updated map.

Parking: on the minor road to Macks Mill   NT666444.  Signposted from the A6105 at East Gordon.   The road is quite quiet but please take care around the car park and when you are on your course – both courses cross the road once.

Courses:  Orange standard Sprint (winning time about 15 minutes. 1.8km).   There were no Yellow course entries therefore no Yellow maps have been printed.

Map:  1:5000.  Blown up for clarity but there’s no room for the legend – ask if you would like the symbols explained beforehand.   Most of the boulders are quite small so heights aren’t given in the descriptions.

Starts:  6:30 – 7pm.  Course closes at 7:45pm.  Start and Finish are both close to Parking.

Entry fees:  Senior members £3, Junior members £1.50,  Non-members +50p.  Hire contactless dibbers +50p per race.  Closing date 24/4/22.  Late entries should email the Organiser.

Series entry form:  https://forms.gle/TyWcjzzJepTFNLoHA

Clothing:   Forest terrain so shorts are NOT allowed.

Terrain notes:  The winter storms have destroyed one block of trees and courses will avoid this area.  Elsewhere there are a lot of single fallen trees which aren’t mapped.  The local volunteers have been busy thinning lots of blocks and you will visit parts you haven’t been to before. You may visit some of the 220 mapped small boulders.

Final information:  All the information you need will be here – let’s keep things simple !
