The short course is ideal for beginners and small children. The medium course is suitable for novices who wish to have a more challenging course than the short course. If you feel like you wish to run through the woods rather than just on the paths and tracks, then the medium may be for you. Both the short and medium courses will have control descriptions in English. The long course is more suitable for more experienced competitors. Both the short and medium courses are solely based in Massey’s Woods but the long course will cross the road and be in both Hellfire and Massey’s woods (again please be careful crossing the road).
