 Map This forest was mapped in late January 2023. The scale is 1:10,000

Terrain notes This is a mixed mainly conifer woodland with some rough moorland and recently felled areas. Extensive mature areas give generally fast running. There is a network of forest roads and an extensive pattern of unofficial mountain bike trails not all of which are mapped. There are steep slopes and ravines to be negotiated.

Toilets available in Todd’s Leap Activity Centre. Outside ones opposite the ‘Beer Garden’ and indoor ones (no studs please.) through the reception entrance.

NI Prizegiving

This will take place in the Todd’s Leap Activity Centre. If you know you are a prize-winner, please try to stay on to collect your prize.

Map This Centre was mapped in late January 2023. The scale is 1:4,000 for clarity. It is not a Sprint map

Terrain notes the event will mainly be within the narrow and very unusual and compact grounds of the Activity Centre. These grounds sweep down along a very steep wooded East and South-east facing slope split by deep ravines. The woodland on the slope is passable. There is a very complex and confusing maze of tracks (many churned up by 4×4 vehicles!), paths, rough trails and fences mostly crossable. These all weave up, over and across the slope. There are a variety of unusual point features; animal sculptures and activity equipment! (There is also numerous unmapped small mobile activity equipment!) The ground is generally wet with a few streams and ponds. All courses will visit some rough moorland with the Long and Medium also crossing to the other side of the main road (very quiet but take care!).
