4: Map, terrain and timing
1:10000, 5m contours. Major new updates by Deeside Orienteering and Leisure Maps.
Generally very runnable parkland, with a mixture of mown and long grass. Some areas of thicker vegetation and forested areas. The area includes a former golf course, which has some more intricate contoured features.
There has been some tree cutting in areas to deal with recent storm damage. This is mostly individual trees, and courses have been planned to avoid the most extensive area.
SPORTIdent timing will be used. There is no touch free punching.
5: Registration opens from 10:30am, and is adjacent to the car park. Yellow maps should be collected before heading to the start.
6: Starts – From 11:00 to 12:30. The start is adjacent to registration.
Start times will not be allocated- just turn up and start when you are ready. Remember to punch the start unit! Please leave at least 1 minute between runners on each course- this may mean you have a short wait.
7: Finish is adjacent to registration
Remember to download when you finish and report to download even if you do not finish the course.
Courses Close – 15:00 and by 15:30 we will be collecting in controls.

8: Safety Info– Please be aware of traffic, and take care when crossing any roads, as the main roads in the park are used by the public. In particular, take care around the main car park and the entrance to the zoo.
Please also watch out for members of the public, dogs, and cyclists.
Participants take part at their own risk – Any participants with relevant pre- existing medical conditions which might affect their participation should disclose them to the race organisers before they start.
Remember that ticks may be about so check yourself after the course.
Pre event information
Safety and Risk
A comprehensive risk assessment will have been carried out by the organiser, but participants take part at their own risk and are responsible for their own safety during the event.
Our forests are at risk from tree pests and diseases. These can dramatically affect the health of our trees, upsetting the delicate ecosystem balance and devastating large areas of woodland.
Pests and diseases hitch a ride in mud and debris on shoes, paws and tyres, ending up in new forests. Here, they can spread rapidly in environments with no natural resilience.
