This is not a maprun event. There will be regular controls used on the day. Instruction will be available for those that need it.
Short : 2km
Medium : 4km
Long : 8km
Climb is negligible on all courses
SI will be used for timing and rental SI cards will be available on the day
The short course will mostly be on paths with some controls slightly off paths, having to go through grass or unpaved to reach these. The medium course is a mix on paths and off, not too difficult. The long course has a bit of everything and will go through woods at different stages so full leg wear is recommended.
