Course information

The Chelmsford route is a cross country, undulating course, fully contained within the beautiful grounds of Hylands Park. The terrain is largely flat, on grass with some slight inclines.  As this is estate land, the course is subject to change depending on the weather conditions in the lead up to the event.

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

Meeting point

The start line is on the open grass area behind Flint Cottage.
