Terrain notes:  This is challenging and technical terrain of mainly open limestone grassland with extensive areas of low visibility scrub hazel and bare limestone pavement. There are many contour features and limited tracks. The Yellow course will have taped sections. In this exposed terrain parents may wish to shadow younger juniors after their own run. (NB This will make the juniors non-competitive.) ‘Yellow’ maps will be available at registration.

WHISTLES are compulsory and a NO CAG/NO GO rule may be enforced so come prepared.

All colours from Yellow – Brown will be on offer.
