The 2 courses, Long and Medium, are primarily urban but include some cross-country sections, which can be muddy and are overgrown in places.
The area is bordered by 2 very busy roads, and has one other slightly busy road running through the centre, close to the start and finish area. This is crossed several times by both courses. Please take care on this and on all roads.
The GPS accuracy of the sites has been thoroughly checked.
Particularly in these Covid times take care to pass other pedestrians at a safe 2m distance, taking particular care to run wide when rounding blind corners.
