Courses

Course description:Millenium Wood was formerly farmland, planted 15 to 20 years ago with native species and has quickly achieved a level of maturity. This is complemented by blocks of ancient woodland, some conceal former stone pits with significant ground detail. Parts of the area become very muddy after wet weather - please ensure suitable (studded) footwear is worn. Note that the start / finish area is 600 metres from the car park, initially along pavements and then a public bridleway. Follow the red/white tapes – please use the pedestrian crossing to cross Broad Street. Two side roads also need to be crossed. Please take care. Parents/guardians are advised to accompany children under 16 crossing the road to the start and returning from the finish. Note that the start and finish will be close to each other. Yellow and Orange courses have a marshalled compulsory crossing point over the stream. The bridge is narrow and slippery. Take care when crossing. Green and Blue courses have recommended crossing points over the stream. Competitors may cross wherever they like, but please be aware of deep water and take care whilst crossing.
