Festive Forest Challenge routes

The course

Everyone will complete the first circuit (10km), half-marathoners and 20 milers will then complete a different circuit, after which the 20 milers repeat the second circuit. All courses will be clearly marked

The course is off-road* and traffic free using footpaths and tracks in the forest

*at the end of each lap participants will cross the road back into West Stow Country Park. This is the only road crossing and will be marshalled

The surfaces are generally good and suitable for normal road shoes

The course has not been measured by a UKA approved course measurer, therefore the distances are approximate

First aid:

First aiders will be present at the start/finish and along the course. If you develop medical problems, please alert the nearest marshal and prompt assistance will be provided
