Course Notes:

The forest has matured greatly in recent years and areas which were felled in the 1980/90s now useable again. Older mature areas have have been allowed to mature further and make for attractive fast running. Mountain bike tracks (runners please exercise caution) have also opened up new areas and route choices.


  1. Parents should be aware that there is a river adjacent to the registration area.
  2. The area is popular for informal mountain biking and the courses use many of the resulting tracks. Runners should be aware of the possibility of meeting bikers in the forest.
