Location Info

* Postcodes are not very precise in some areas, so don't rely on them for an exact location.

Pre event info

Join us at Tilgate Park & Tilgate Forest, Crawley for a mixture of fun, fast and technical areas for all abilities from Yellow to Brown. Enjoy the challenge of running on the same area as Harvester 2018.

Regional Series Info

These events offer a larger range of colour coded courses (including the usual yellow, orange, green, blue) and attract a wider group of people from different clubs. Seven colours are used with each representing a certain level of difficulty (both technical and physical). The darker the colour, the longer and harder the course. For cheaper prices and to ensure a map, pre-entry is recommended via Fabian 4.
