Description: The Deri is a great area last used for Welsh Championships in 2016. The courses will primarily be in the old oak wood and open moorland of the Deri. There are some steep slopes but courses will be planned to avoid the steepest. Most of the area will be very runnable in March.The start is fairly high up the hill to minimise climb. Please take care following the tape to the start, particularly along the road. Map Scale of 1:10,000 (one cm = 100m). It is a great map, prepared in 2016 for the Welsh championship. Maps will be in map bags.
