Notices

  • Approx 750m walk to the start is taped but off track (rough ground).
  • HEALTH: There are ticks in the area so full leg and torso cover is required and check for them after your run
  • South of the parking area is Out of Bounds because of pheasant rearing
  • Dogs are welcome in the forest but should be on a lead please (pheasants). The surrounding fields should be avoided since some have young cattle grazing
