Safety

All the routes are off-road on firm gravel but occasionally rutted forestry tracks, soil footpaths and, in the gulley leading to the woods, a steep rocky path.

The ground can be uneven with trip hazards such as rocks and tree roots, and overhead branches.

In wet weather the paths can be muddy and slippery with puddles. Off road shoes are recommended particularly when wet.

Please note that there are places on the routes (particularly at the start and finish) where it gets very narrow. To help us avoid bottlenecks, if you are a slower runner please keep to the left to allow faster runners space to pass.

Parking

Free parking is provided close to the Village Hall and directions will be provided by Marshalls on the day. There is limited on-site parking for disabled visitors.
