The start for all courses is in the park across the road from Assembly. 200m maximum for the main car park. Please follow the tapes and only cross the road at the unmanned pedestrian crossing. The road is not particularlry busy as it only leads to a small estate and no further.

There are 2 finishes both close to the school. The Finish in the park is only for the White, Yellow and Orange courses. This will be manned. The route back to Assembly crosses the road by the same unmanned pedestrian crossing.

If you are not confident that your children can safely cross the pedestrian crossing please accompany them to the start and meet them at the Finish.

For your own safety you are advised to carry a whistle.

Green, Blue and Brown courses will not be available to any runner aged under 16 on the day of the event, as they all contain a short stretch alongside and crossing a road that has occasional fast moving traffic.

All courses cross the Leeds Liverpool Canal and River Aire. Both must only be crossed by bridges.

Junior courses in particular run on the towpath alongside the canal and past locks. This section is always popular with the public and essentially, as a result, is very safe, but can parents and guardians please ensure your children are aware of the safety issues in such an area, and if you have any doubts please either accompany or shadow them.
