Parking information:Failand Village Hall, Ox House Lane, Failand, Bristol BS8 3TS https://w3w.co/silver.oddly.lofts Sign-posted from B3128 Clevedon Road. Overflow parking is along Flax Bourton Road on route to the start, but download is located at Village hall so all participants will need to report to the hall after their run. Entry on the Day, dibber hire, download and toilets are all located at the Village Hall. There is a 1.3 km walk along a pavement from parking to forest where the start and finish are located. Marshals will aid road crossings but ALL JUNIORS must be accompanied to the start and from the finish by a parent/ other responsible adult. There will be an uncovered, unmanned Baggage dump, near the start. Please bring any clothing in a water proof bag. Juniors who may be waiting for an adult to escort them back to the car park should ensure they leave warm clothing here to wear while they wait.


Description:Part of BOK's Local event series, scoring towards Club Senior League and Junior League. Map: • 1:7,500 scale with 5m contours. • Drawn by Jamie Hayward in 2021. • Waterproof size A4 with courses overprinted. • Loose control descriptions will also be available. Newcomers are advised to familiarise themselves with uncrossable features and out of bounds symbols (if in doubt ask at the Start). Features marked as ‘High Fences/ High Walls’, must not be crossed. Doing so could risk our permissions for future events and will result in disqualification. The woodland is home to several stands of huge redwoods. Where these are individually distinct, they are marked as such. Where they are clumped together, and have minimal effect on navigation or runnability, they are included in the generic ‘forest run/walk’ shading.

Course description:To the west, plantation forest with many paths, some unmarked. Off-path undergrowth varies in runnability. Some areas of rocky ground and crags. Light Green, Green and Blue courses travel through some areas of open field (cows may be present) into an area of forested mining terrain, with many rock and contour features. Paths and steep slopes will be muddy and slippery- leg protection and grippy shoes are strongly advised. Novelty 'contour-only' Green course is included, in addition to the seven standard courses from White up to Blue.
