Terrain Description

It is essential that you run the Indoor Sprint first to avoid any possibility of muddy shoes being used in the school.

If shoes are muddy after your park run please remove them before entering the school to download.

Lister Park is very runnable and fast, if a little hilly. There will be a funfair at one end of the park, which the courses will avoid.


Dog restrictions

Absolutely no dogs in the school grounds (including parking). On a tight lead in the park, if you use roadside parking.
