Venue Details

Runnable deciduous woodland and a variety of open and semi-open areas.  Several stream valleys provide contour detail.  It is split into three parts by the Sheffield Parkway and A57, but footbridges mean this doesn't have a negative impact on course planning. An excellent map was surveyed and drawn in 2010 by Marcus Pinker.
