A 60 minute Score Course. 30 controls of differing point values. See website for details.
All controls in the Country Park are on paths or very close to paths. But in some cases, there may be a more direct non-path route choice. Most controls in the urban area are on footpaths, with a few at road junctions and one postbox.

This event crosses busy roads hence the area outside the park must not be attempted by anyone under the age of 16, even if they would be accompanied by an adult. However, there are plenty of controls to find within the park and these have the highest points score for juniors.
There is a penalty of 10 points for each minute or part of a minute late back.

Other Things to do in the Area

Open water swimming available in the main Lake
