Notes:
The area is a mix of open and wooded parkland. Please wear suitable footwear - after all the rain there is some shallow standing water and some paths are very muddy (2 weeks before the event and not likely to improve with the weather which is forecast). However, there is plenty of variety and the more technical courses are planned at 'middle distance' style with many changes of direction. Medium Course 2+km and Long Course 3+km - no charge for a 2nd run.

Safety:
Please take care driving into the area as the golfers cross the road. Do not cross the golf course at any point (it is marked as OOB on the map)

Competitors take part at their own risk.
It is recommended that whistles are carried.
Once you have started a course it is a rule that you don't leave the event without reporting to a download official even if you retire.

The Competitor Safety Slip can be downloaded and brought to registration if you wish to leave medical or emergency contact details. You may place in a sealed envelope. The slip will be only accessible to the organiser or first aiders and will be destroyed after the event.
