Terrain Description

A mix of urban estates of varying complexities, campus, parkland, woodland and open land.

The Yellow and Light Green courses are entirely in Beckett Park campus and the surrounding parkland and woodland.  The Light Green courses crosses some roads in the campus where traffic will be slow-moving and is expected to be light.  The Yellow course has one short stretch along the side of a campus road, which will be marshalled.

It is likely that some paths in the woodland surrounding the campus will still be muddy.

Some parts of the campus may be busy with pedestrians – please be considerate.

 Out of Bounds:  All sports pitches and the running track and its surrounds are Out of Bounds and will be marked as such on the map.


Dog restrictions

Under tight control please
