Course Information

Previous experience says that the technical difficulty level of the courses is likely to be below average. Also, the various relays prescribe the courses which may be run. These are the reasons why some people may be running 'up' (e.g. doing Green rather than Orange) rather than 'down'.

Courses will be gaffled: this means there will be some variations in legs even on the same colour course. Gaffling is used to make following difficult. It is really important that younger runners in particular keep checking their control codes.

e.g. there are three different white courses, so each member of a "Primary" team will run a different one. So at the mass start for Primary (at 10.45) runners will be going off in three different ways. 

Entry Details
