Parking

Although the majority of the route takes place on tarmac, there is a 1km section of the course which is on uneven and potentially boggy grass. There are also a number of uneven and challenging surfaces along the route. Therefore, the route is deemed not accessible for wheelchair or pushchair users.

Accessible parking will be available in Car Park 4 and the start/finish area is on hardstanding.
