Event Details

This event is being held at Star Posts with parking north of the Nine Mile Ride/B3430 road


The race area has had a map update for 2023

Terrain Star Posts is a large forested area with excellent contour detail. The forest is generally fast with high visibility except where the bracken remains thick. As winter progresses these areas of bracken die back and the speed of the forest improves.  The forest is broken up with an extensive network of paths and rides, however the courses have been planned to avoid the paths as much as possible.  It is a working forest with many new areas of felling, some of the recently felled areas have been replanted and are out of bounds. The forest has a number of mountain bike tracks which are out of bounds except for crossing which should be done with care. Competitors should be aware that there are minor paths not mapped in the area in some cases these have been caused by mountain bike activity.
Courses White,Yellow, Orange, Light Green, Very Short Green, Short Green, Green, Short Blue, Blue, Short Brown, Brown, Black - course lengths as on racesignup

Birch Hill Car Park (accessed via Leppington) - SU869665

Leppington, Bracknell, RG12 7WW {1.4km from Assembly}
