Directions and Parking: Horsforth Station Car Park Station Road, Horsforth LS18 5NZ.
Public Transport: Horsforth rail station is on the map and immediately adjacent to the start/finish. Bus services to/ from Horsforth Station include 19A,50A,97. The 6 serves the station and goes through the area.
Start: The start and finish are co-located on the pedestrian exit from the main body of the car park back to Station road and the bridge.
Important Notes: Take great care if parked in the car park near the start point as when you switch on the app it may register. We suggest you are 100% ready to run when you switch the app on so as not to utilise any of your precious time! If you do have a false start just end your run and start again.
Start Anywhere: This course has Start Anywhere enabled. This means that you can start and finish at any control not just the designated start and finish. If doing this the designated start and finish become another checkpoint on the course worth the same points as the checkpoint at which you started. Eg You start at No 14, collect other checkpoints which can include the designated start and finish and to register your time you go back to end your run at No 14.
This mode is great for local people who can start closer to home and for public transport users who can start closer to their arrival point.
Course: This is a Score course with a 60 minute time limit. There are 30 possible checkpoints. Visit as many checkpoints as you can in the time. Each checkpoint is worth 20 points. There is a 10 point penalty for every minute or part therof that you exceed the 60 minute time limit.
