Courses

Course description:Chailey Common (south) is a low lying heathland area. There is little climb within the area and in places the ground becomes very wet in winter, particularly after heavy rain. Runnability is fast in many places, except for those areas where there is significant gorse and heather. In places there is significant ground detail, partly a result of being a former military training ground. There are several roads crossing the area which may necessitate timed out crossings for safety reasons.
