Registration & Start Times
Courses open at 2pm and close at 3pm. Please try to arrive before 2.30pm for your run.
Steep sided mainly coniferous wood. Stout footwear advised: paths can get muddy and churned up by horses. Parents with young children: robust buggies will cope with the forest roads and hence the Hare course only.
Dogs allowed but must be under control at all times.
The Pines cafe at the main crossroads 2.5km to the W of the venue along Enmore Road is open 09.30-16.30 for snacks & hot drinks. Toilet facilities for customers.
