From parking to the start is about 750m with 50m climb. It is along the footpath to the dib which is narrow and rocky in places so extra care (and ample time) will be needed especially if it is wet. Children should be accompanied to the start.

To be competitive in this Championship event you must enter the course appropriate to your age category. Prizes will be given for each age class so if you run a course up or down you are not eligible for a prize.

Prizegiving will be held as near to course closing time as possible once winners have been identified.

Terrain Description

Generally good running. Typical walled limestone terrain, with many rock and stone features.

There are also a number of gates or dry stone walls in the area which need to be crossed only at designated crossing points. These crossing points MUST be used, and include specially constructed stiles, open gateways, stiles and gates on public rights of way, and farm gates.

Courses have been planned so that S Green and VS Green courses do not need to cross high stiles if the optimal route is used this will be indicated in the start lane. Other courses have some high stiles on them and some crossing points in the NE section may have runners coming from both directions.

Some gates will be locked and need to be climbed. Others can be opened - if you open a gate, you must close it after passing through. Any damage to walls or gates is to be reported to the organiser to allow for repairs. Damage to walls threatens permission to use these areas in future. No stiles or gates need to be climbed on the young junior or shortest senior courses.

A number of areas are marked on the map as Out of Bounds, including all areas of limestone pavement and SSSI areas. This must be respected - they will not be taped off.
