Terrain Notes

This area is crossed by a network of access roads and walking paths; many are wheelchair accessible; a little hilly the gradients are generally not steep. It is fast running terrain though some route choices through woodland may encounter small areas of sparse bramble.

A number of areas are mapped as olive green. Competitors MUST stay on the paths which pass through them. Access roads in particular are edged by hedges, some only beginning to mature. However, they are mapped with the dark green, ‘Impassable hedge’ symbol. Only mapped gaps or light green sections may be crossed.

Course Safety

Underfoot grass areas and embankments may prove slippery particularly after wet weather; courtyards are cobbled which can also be slippery.


Not required if using own SI Card – proceed directly to start. Hire cards can be collected from the Organiser in the carpark.


The Start and Finish are close to the car park. Competitors will start at 1 minute intervals on each course.
