The Yellow course goes alongside some quiet estate roads and on some quiet cul-de-sacs. The Light Green course also goes alongside, and twice crosses, roads with a 20mph speed restriction. Parents should warn children to take great care on these roads.

Terrain Description

An Urban event, but with extensive areas of parkland and rougher and hillier open and wooded terrain. The park is a popular local amenity for dog walking and children’s play so please show consideration to local residents throughout the park and surrounding area. There are some steep slopes and steps which will require extra care if wet. All other hard surfaces will be slippery if wet. Competitors are warned to take care.

Dog restrictions

Dogs only under tight control please.
