Pre-event Details

Map / Terrain

The courses are relatively short in this rather constrained area of old mixed woodland on a steep hillside.

Final section of all courses is through a mature pine plantation.

Can be very slippery if wet.

There is some storm damage near a mandatory crossing point. This can easily be circumvented, but the wrong decision here could be frustrating.

There are two dilapidated wire fences which will be taped for safety.

Course Information

Long 2.9k 165m climb
Short 1.9k 105m
Orange 1.6k 110m
