We are offering three main courses, long, medium and short, and a sprint course. The sprint event can be entered on its’ own, but it is also offered as a second run option at a reduced price of £3 if you enter one of the other three main courses. You can enter the sprint race ahead of time via racesignup, or on the day if you are feeling fit after the Christmas break!
The beginners course should be OK for buggies and wheelchairs i.e accessible. However, due to the nature of the area the course is Yellow standard

Access to the East Campus is from Hull Road heading East from the city centre, and heading West from the A64. Follow signs to the University East campus at the roundabout on Hull Road, on to Field Lane.
Assembly and download will be in the Law Department building reception area, and toilets will be available there. Please follow the taped route from the car park to the assembly area to avoid encroaching on the competition area.
Parking in Field Lane Car Park, off Kimberlow Lane. Buses 6, 66, and 67 also stop next to this car park, providing access from the city centre and railway station. Follow taped route to assembly.
The East campus provides a mix of intricate non-linear buildings with complex landscaping. Longer courses will navigate the more open areas beyond the main building area where there is more diverse area of open grassland and wilded areas and plantation trees now reaching maturity. Be aware that some of the areas outside of the campus area can get quite wet.
The main drainage ditches are deep and steep-sided, filled with vegetation e.g. bullrushes.
Gullies around the campus buildings are shallow and wider than the ditches in that area and are usually dry. Ditches are narrower and could be wet or dry!
Around the college buildings is pedestrian only. However there are access routes used by slow-moving service vehicles and bikes/scooters. However at this time there will be few students and few contractors. Beyond the campus buildings the courses will cross a service road used by the buses and vehicular traffic going to/from the sports village, including orienteers coming and going. Please take care crossing this road.
Each college has an enclave of residential buildings. The gates on some of the routes between these buildings will be locked – read the map carefully!
