The course is challenging with a long hill.

The course is suitable for studded shoes and short spikes. There are building works and
developments at Old Down and we have had to adapt the course. It is good practice to walk the
course before racing. It consists of mown and fairly flat grass, tracks over grass and through woods,
a short tarmac section by the visitors' car park and a gravelly track before returning to grass. Most
of the descent is on grass or a grassy track and the ascent through the woods. Be aware of stones
near or on the surface and of tree roots.
We expect that when the loop is used there will be little or no lapping. If there is please take care.
The course currently advised may vary. This will be confirmed two weeks before the event.

Numbers should be collectd at least 30 mins before the race starts.

The course is best run with trail shoes or spikes or similar shoes. Runners are advised to walk the course before competing.
