The start for the long and short courses is 1.3km and 200m climb from registration.
The start for the easy course is close to registration.
All courses finish near registration.

Southerndale is mostly steep, open moorland with some rock and contour detail. Runnability is generally good though is slowed in places by undergrowth and marsh. The last part of the long and short courses, and all the easy course, is in an area of forest plantation with a good track network.

Important Safety Notes:
- You must come and register before starting your run and you must return to registration to download by 8:00pm even if you retire from your course.
- If you travelled to the event alone, you must state this at registration or leave your car keys.
- Much of the terrain is high and exposed. Please dress for the conditions.
- You are advised to carry a whistle to attract help if seriously injured.

Courses Close:
