Primarily well-maintained public parks. Both parks are fast and runnable. They have steep slopes, which could become slippery if wet.
Myrtle Park (the Chase) has a section of rougher terrain which is used by Courses 1- 4. Full leg cover is advised. Shoes with some grip are advisable.
Courses 1 and 2 at Myrtle Park also run alongside an urban section for a short distance, primarily car parks and their access roads, which will have only slow-moving traffic. Please take appropriate care.
Both maps updated 2018.
Dogs under tight control and preferably not on the courses. There are likely to be restrictions on dogs in the Event Centre at University Academy. Watch this space.
