5 to 6 miles
Beechenhurst Lodge, Forest Of Dean, GL16 7EG
After so many positive comments last year the route will remain the same for 2017 - a single lap which takes in some great single track and has variety throughout. There will be the usual fully taped dense forest sections, muddy paths and wider leafy bridle-ways. The chair is gone alas, but we visit other forest sculptures. One small 'shoe wash' water feature.
The course will be marked to death with over 500 reflective arrows, markers and tape. No one will get lost! We will have sweeps and marshals at key junctions. The race HQ will be in our heated marquee in the car park, where post race hot drinks are available (included in the entry fee).
