Course Information

Sprint Course for Seniors

Orange course for more experienced juniors, or juniors, 12 and under, accompanied by their parents or guardians and Seniors who don't wish to do the Sprint.

Terrain Description

A bit of everything. Park, urban and rocky woodland.

The sprint course crosses the by-pass, the railway, the canal and the River Aire. It goes without saying, hopefully, that all should only be crossed by bridges over them. The Orange course also crosses the River Aire.

The Sprint course also crosses many roads. Please take care with traffic and run wide around corners to avoid collisions with pedestrians.


Dog restrictions

Under tight control please.
