Venue Details

Canklow Woods is a sloping area with a mixture of deciduous woodland, open and semi-open.  All along the top of the slope are the remains of stone workings which provide good contour detail.  The area is criss-crossed by a complex path network.

It is on the edge of Rotherham and very accessible, with the southern boundary of the area being less than a kilometre from junction 33 on the M1.

A comprehensive risk assessment will have been carried out by the organiser, but participants take part at their own risk and are responsible for their own safety during the event. If a competitor has a pre-existing medical condition that they think should be declared, please complete a medical form at enquiries. The sealed envelope will only be opened in an emergency.
