Terrain notes: This
is challenging and technical terrain of mainly open limestone grassland with bare
limestone pavement and extensive areas of low visibility scrub hazel (which has
spread significantly since first mapped). There are many contour features and
limited tracks. There are both sheep and cattle all across the area. The Yellow
course will have taped sections. In this exposed and difficult terrain parents
may wish to shadow younger juniors after their own run. (NB This will make the
junior non-competitive.) ‘Yellow’ maps will be available at registration.
FENCES. There are a large number of fences to be
crossed on all courses and most have mapped crossing points to facilitate this.
They will be indicated with tapes. One new fence has been over-printed
with a purple line. This must only be crossed at a marked crossing point.
WHISTLES are compulsory and a NO CAG/NO GO rule may be
enforced so come prepared.
We apologise – there will be No White course due to the difficulty
of the terrain.
All colours from Yellow – Brown will
be on offer.
Please note the map has been re-aligned (‘tilted’
slightly) to compensate for recent changes in magnetic declination.
