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.

Map Details

Rewell Woods, updated by Roger Maher April 2017. Scale 1:10,000, A4. Minor updates by planner.

Terrain Description

Mixed runnable and slow run undulated forest with a good network of tracks. The nature of the blocks of wood can vary considerably, with some mature coppiced sections and other areas of wood that have been recently thinned. There are also a couple of clear felled areas that are very rough and courses have been planned to avoid these.

Dog restrictions

Yes but be aware that local dog walkers use the area.

Facilities

Toilets on site. Basic first aid available at registration.
