Due to the terrain of the course, and the incline on the route we would not recommend this event for wheelchair users. The first 1K of the course route is on a flat, tarmac surface, however the remainder of the route is very uneven, and narrow in places. The last 2K of the course is also up hill. Wheelchair users would have no difficulty on the event site as this is on hard standing, flat, tarmacked ground with some fine gravel. The journey from the car park to the event is downhill on a tarmac path. Carers are welcome free of charge.
