Course description:Terrain Description. All courses, except white and yellow which will be in the forest, will spend time in both the forest and semi-open quarry area. The relatively flat forest has varying runability and competitors will be kept to the best parts. The complex quarry area is well used by 4x4s and has lots of lumps and bumps and many vehicle tracks through the small wooded areas. Will you be one of the few people who manages to get through the quarry section with minimal time lost? It’ll be tricky... Brown 5.5km (M18-50, W18-21), Blue 5.2km (M16, M55-60, W35-40), Green 4.0km (M65-80, W16, W45-65), Short Green 3.4km (M14, W14) (W70-W85+) M85+, Orange 2.1km (M12,W12), Yellow 2.1km (M10,W10) - accessible to large wheeled pushchairs White 1.5km - accessible to large wheeled pushchairs. Distances are draft and subject to controlling, climb 2% on each course. 60 minute score (Adult Novice) - Visit as many of the 30 different controls as possible and finish within 60 minutes for maximum points. Each control is worth 10 points, so the maximum score is 300. There will be a deduction of 10 points for every minute or part thereof that you’re late back. Children’s String Course
