For satnavs, the nearest postcode is YO22 5JE.  This will take you to the May Beck car park, which is on the way from the Red Gate corner to the event parking.

Terrain:

Coniferous forest of mixed age and runnability, with a good ride and track network.

The undergrowth – which is still at its summer height – and is shown on the map.  The areas shown as "undergrowth – slow run" are mainly ferns, bilberry and long grass.  The areas shown as "undergrowth – difficult to run" are mainly bracken.  There are very few brambles.

Some ditches are entrenched and the new ISOM2017 'trench' symbol – two parallel black lines – has been used where appropriate.  The ditches are still crossable, but take care.

Courses: White, Yellow, Orange, Light Green, Short Green, Green, Blue and Brown.
