Course information

Please remember to bring your own water bottle already filled as there will be no bottled water provided at events. ScottishPower water refill stations will be available to use.

The Dudley course is on a mix of terrain with some sections on paths and is fairly flat, with one incline. The course passes the lake and Himley Hall itself and so is a very picturesque course with a great atmosphere.

Please arrive 30 to 45mins before your start time so that you are prepared and ready to go on time
