Course information

The course is on paths within the forest. A great route through a great venue.  Some of the paths can be quite uneven throughout. 

Due to parts of the course being in the forest, it may become slightly muddy underfoot depending on recent weather conditions.

Please bring a reusable water bottle with you if you require water during the event, as there will only be water available at the finish.


Meeting point

The meeting point and the start line is located on Old Pale car park just in front of the new visitor centre.

We would advise that our 3k course may be unsuitable for wheelchairs, mobility aids and pushchairs due to the woodland terrain. 

The route is on a mixture of flat tarmac paths and  woodland paths, so anyone with accessibility issues may require assistance on the uneven surfaces.   


There is disabled parking available close to the event site for spectators, but please be aware that in bad weather conditions the ground may become boggy and challenging for those with mobility issues. 

The event site is surrounded by a mixture of tarmac pathways that incline and decline.
