Start: The start and finish are co-located on path inside the park close to the Park entrance at the Junction of Leathley Avenue and Bingley Road.
Important Notes: Take great care if parked on the road 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.
Be particularly careful on this course not to run back through (or near to circa 20M) the start point at anytime before you want to finish as you would stop your timing prematurely - plan your route accordingly.
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.
