FINAL DETAILS ARE IN BOLD FONT (2/12/2021)

Best route to event for all: - use the location detail for access -

the postcode gets you near to the assembly field track entrance ,...OR

Leave the M180 at junction (4) turning North:

at the very next roundabout turn West, continue for 1.5 km and turn left on to the B1398;

After 1km and after bridging the M180 turn sharp right (signed)(50mph road);

After 1km traveling West on a single track road, the entrance to the parking field is revealed.

On leaving for home (if you came from the West) you cannot turn right towards

(M180) junction (4) so turn left and travel through Scunthorpe, (going straight at all junctions) until the M181 and then the M180.

Terrain information: -

After a week of rain it will not be possible to keep your feet dry except for those participants on the White & Yellow courses.

Please observe the "OOB" areas and "DO NOT CROSS PURPLE BOUNDARY LINES"

The area has mixed woodland and sand dune slopes with depressions and hills.

The rhododendrons are impenetrable - use marked path routes or obvious gaps. 

The "Gull Ponds" have black bank lines which means they are dangerous to cross.

Please respect other users of the woodland many of them being dog walkers.
