Pre Event Info
A comprehensive risk assessment will have been carried out by the organiser, but participants take part at their own risk and are responsible for their own safety during the event. Parents are expected to shadow young and/or inexperienced children.
Directions / Parking
There is a small carpark of the Leeds and Bradford Road (B6157). The better option would to be to park either on the main road or in the local streets. Look for a green tent and an AIRE flag near the car park.
Registration & Start Times
We will be ready to see you from 1:00 pm
When you arrive you will receive a “Dibber”, an electronic timing chip, given the opportunity to look at the map before you start and an AIRE coach will be on hand to assist to talk you through what to do and answer any questions. The course start will be adjacent. There you receive the map for your course, and you can start at intervals in your own time.
You can start at any time up to 2.30 pm.
Entries are £1 for each person for their first course. After that that there is no charge for running more courses.
For youngest competitors we provide three short (about 700m) courses. Do one and we tend to find a lot of the kids end up doing both!
For older children and those that have attended earlier events in the series there will be two medium courses and a long one.
All courses stay inside the Bramley fall area and do not cross any roads or the canal. The courses go into the woodland and the short and medium course have footpaths to follow.
Open land and woodland
Dogs on a short lead please. Please clear up any mess.
