Terrain Summary The terrain consists of forested areas and sand dunes with uneven ground, thickets, brambles/nettles, some fences, pits and steep sloped areas. There are several fences. The safety bearing is due North. This will take you back to the internal access road bounding the area and from there you can locate the car park. Extreme care should be taken in when crossing stiles.

The area also contains range debris, some of which may be unexploded ordnance, and range infrastructure. Under no circumstances touch, kick or pick up any items lying on the ground. Do not engage with or play on range infrastructure, which includes open trenches on the ranges and target pits / mechanisms both on the ranges and in the competition area. Please ensure children are always supervised closely when not running.

The area has livestock, so ticks are present, with the risk of Lyme’s Disease. Please check for ticks on completion of your run.

The sand dunes lead to a beach and the sea. The coaching area is bounded by fences to the south, preventing accidental access.
