Courses & Terrain
Long course – 3.6 km, 80m climb, 13 controls.
Short course – 2 km, 50m climb, 12 controls.
These are straight line distances, estimated additional 10-20% for an optimal running route.
Lady Dixon mainly consists of open grassland and forested areas, with gravel and tarmac paths. The ground can feature the occasional marsh and muddy patch. Be prepared for a not-insignificant ascent over the three main hills. Trail shoes with/without studs are recommended and so is full leg cover.
Controls will be SIAC enabled with punching start/finish.
Prices – SENIOR £5 (member), £7 (non-member) | JUNIOR £3 (mem/non-mem)
The max charge to enter as a family is £13 (non-members £17).
SI card hire is free.
Be aware of cars and other pedestrians: both courses may cross internal roads, though these are unlikely to have any vehicles. Do not cross any water features outlined in solid black. Full leg cover. Courses close (& control collectors will be dispatched) at 8:30 pm sharp, after which time competitors must report to download so that we don’t spend time looking for you. If you think you will take >1 hr book an earlier start time!
There are currently no Covid restrictions for events however we would ask that participants continue to apply common sense to limit the spread of infections.
