Terrain Summary The forest is in good shape but some areas of undergrowth have not yet died down. Much of the pine forest is open for fast running, although care should be taken running over the exposed tree roots, especially on paths if there has been any rain. The worst of the undergrowth has been added as a green screen on the map and courses planned to permit straight red line running, but competitors are urged to look up and ahead in case of unexpected blockage!!
Previous Maps/Routegadget This area was last used for a Spring Cup event in April 2023. Routegadget map and courses can be found here:

🟢 Light Green – km + m climb – this course requires confident map reading and compass skills.
