The course will be really suited to spikes/studs, as totally on grass.

Loop B includes most of Loop A, and Loop C includes most of A and B.

The course has to fit in around the schools pitches, and so it may be necessary to change parts of the course, especially the Start and Finish if ground conditions require.

The Course


The security gate will be manned and all cars entering the site will be given numbered tickets which must be clearly displayed on the dashboard. There will also be number plate recognition cameras in operation. All cars will be directed to appropriate spaces so please follow instructions from the stewards.

School site

Registration, course, toilets, refreshments will all be in a defined area. All other areas are out of bounds and it is imperative that visitors do not stray into any other parts of the site as lessons and various activities will be underway throughout the day.

There are assault course structures in the start field which must not be used or climbed on.

No dogs should be brought to this event as they will not be allowed on site.

Please allow sufficient time to park and register for your race as there may be some congestion at peak times.

There is good parking at the school, but there will be some congestion during peak periods so please allow extra time. Cars are parked at owners’ risk. KSAA accept no responsibility.


It is strongly advised that all competitors ensure they have suitable footwear for what may be heavy ground conditions.
