Type of event: Night
The runnability of Ditchling Common has improved enormously. Many of the thickets have been removed and at this time of year there is no sign of the bracken that takes over in the summer months. The map is a little old and the recent thinning of the woodland is not reflected in the mapping. Nevertheless a decent opportunity to get out in terrain for some night training. Thanks to Alex Lines for the planning.
