Terrain

Lower Earley is a modern housing estate built in the 1980s-1990s.  It consists of many quiet cul-de-sacs, featuring many small parks and woods with numerous footpaths linking the different areas.  The western part of Lower Earley is on a slope which drops away  towards the South - competitors on the longer courses will notice the height change!

Courses

Courses:  Short 2.0 km, Medium 4-5 km and Long 6-7 km [Distances appoximate and subject to final planning]

Important: All courses will be crossing roads on the estate - cross with care. Under-passes will be used beneath busy roads. The Short course is mainly on paths, only crossing two quiet roads. However, any competitor under 16 must be accompanied (at crossings) by an appropriate responsible adult.
