Location: - SW side of Shipton Road YO30 5PD
Fixture Date: - 13/04/2021
The start/finish area is close to the very small car park on the SW side of Shipton Road YO30 5PD opposite the junction with Loweswater Road. If you park on Loweswater Road or adjacent streets, take care crossing Shipton Road (40mph traffic).
There is a car park but it’s tiny and there will be non-orienteers using it so please park on nearby roads consider cycling/jogging/walking to the event or at least parking a bit further away.

Areas of youngish trees with a large variety of runnability.
Many deep ditches… there will be an update on the depth of the water at the start! There are bridges to cross.
A cycle path and some mountain bike courses to beware of. Some areas marked out of bounds (maroon criss-cross hatching).
A marshy area with lots of wet depressions.
The River Ouse – keep out!
Fences, many crossable but some mapped as uncrossable due to barbed wire.
