Directions / Parking

When entering the school grounds, bear right and follow the road to the car park on the right.

Course Information

We cater from beginners through to a good club standard. We call the courses Hare, Squirrel, Badger, and Fox and these offer a clear progression in the difficulty level. The Fox course usually incorporates adult training exercises.

JOG courses explained

The Hare, Squirrel and Badger courses stay within the school grounds. There may be vehicle movements within the school, so please take when using the roads and car parks.

The map scale is 1:4000 with a full legend.

The Fox course extends out of the school grounds through a COMPULSORY crossing point (gate) into the surrounding area of Holway.

This course crosses several roads, so any under 16’s MUST be accompanied by a parent/guardian. Take care when crossing roads.

DO NOT run along the ROAD on the dual-carriageway section of Holway Road (marked as OUT-OF-BOUNDS).

The map scale is 1:5000 and DOES NOT include a legend.

Within the school grounds are several areas that are roped off. These are either cricket squares or areas of wet grass, and are OUT-OF-BOUNDS. They have not been marked on the map, but are obvious on the ground. Please do not cross any roped-off areas.

All areas mapped as OUT-OF-BOUNDS must NOT be entered/crossed.

Standard PIN punching will be used for ALL courses.

Entry Details

  • Entry - £3 per person pre-entered or £4 per person on the day

Please consider buying a pack of pre-entry credits in advance. This costs you the same but saves the club a lot in credit card fees.
