Those who have run here previously will know that at the Southern end of the Marina there are 2 lock gates and a road bridge.  The road bridge is often swiveled (OOB) to allow sailing vessels to enter the Marina.  One Lock gate footpath will always be accessible to pedestrians.

Saturdays are always busy so please be aware of others, cafe areas and some traffic moving relatively slowly.

There are 32 controls on Course A Chase.  Early dibbers record 30 dibs only.

There's no room on the maps for control descriptions, loose ones only.  We can tape yours to your arm at the start if you do not have 'a holder'.
