Parking

The course uses a mixture of grass field and main park paths. The grassed areas could be effected by poor weather and adjustments will be made where ever possible. There is a hill section for around 100m and a gravel path for around 80m in distance just after the 2K point that may require assistance.

We suggest this course is suitable to wheelchair users with assistance.
