See the example map below: all footpaths are tarmac with the exception of the four marked with arrows which can be muddy (with puddles if it has been raining) - especially the path marked with the blue arrow which crosses fields and can be slippy. All bar one of these can be avoided depending on route choice. Road shoes should be fine but if you choose any of the more 'adventurous' routes, please take care.

Fences and walls have been removed from the map for clarity. This does create two things to be aware of:

1. The area highlighted in light blue (in the South) is not as open as the map suggests - there are trees and fenced areas. This should not impact any route choice or short cuts just do not panic that it is not entirely open!

2. The area highlighted in green (in the North East) has an unmarked wall along the footpath - again this will not impact route choice.

There are a lot of those zig zag barriers at the end of footpaths - some bigger than others. Any deemed too difficult for wheelchairs will be marked as inaccessible on the accessible course map.

There are several areas of out of bounds marked on the map - some are obvious (schools, the hospital, building sites and allotments) but some are areas that are private (usually with signs saying no public access etc). Anyone crossing these areas will be heavily penalised. (Please note that the footpath marked with the blue arrow below is allowed).

The A38 (to the NE of the map) should not be crossed (but you can use the pavement that is unmapped along the side, which is why it is not marked as out of bounds).

Directions / Parking

There should be plenty of road-side parking near the start / finish - please park responsibly.

Course Information

Three courses are offered, Long, Short, and Accessible. Long and Short use exactly the same controls and you can decide between them on the night.

All are "Score" courses, meaning there isn't a set order to the controls you visit.

Short Score - the order of the controls you want to visit is entirely up to you.

Long Score - odds and evens format used. That is, there are two sets of controls, odd numbered controls and even numbered ones, one set tackled after the other (running through two of a particular colour sets your first block and then two of the other colour switches you). Once you switch to the second set, you cannot go back to the first set. The control circles on the map are coloured red on one set and blue on the other. The colours are meaningful only for the Long score.

Accessible - wheelchair friendly. It is an adapted version of the Short course with width restrictions, steps, etc. marked and inaccessible controls removed.

The optimum routes are typically between 7.5 and 10 km for the long and 6 to 7.5 km for the short.

Each course has a time limit of 50 minutes.

Points will be deducted at a rate of 30 points per minute for each minute or part minute you're late back.

Points values for controls are variable and denoted by the first number of the control, e.g. 62 scores 60 points.
