S/J/V/W Course

The S/J/V/W course will be slightly different to last year with more use of paths and other sections of the park. The climb alongside the golf club and fast descent to the bottom field are back in. The majority of the course is ride-able with only the steps to the finishing area requiring those finely tuned dismounts and remounts! The race will start in the field next to Car Park 3.

Youth Course

The Youth course uses most of the S/J/V/W but is a slightly shorter. The race will start at the finish line.

Under 12/10/8s Course
The Under 12/10/8s Course used the top field the same as last year. The race will start at the finish line.
