Directions / Parking
National Trust car park at the Dyke tavern. In the area adjacent to the start/finish, we have been asked not to use stakes for the controls (to avoid disturbing an ancient monument). To this end, some of the controls will be hung via cords. The event is offering free hire of a SIAC contactless card to minimise the delay of punching the controls on strings. Please ask Rob on the night, and let Joe (SI Team) know if you have swapped from your normal SI card.
In the far eastern part of the map, there is temporary electric fencing that might possibly affect runners on the Green and Blue courses. It's at a height of 70cm, and is possible to circumnavigate if necessary.
