Regional event at West Haigh & New Park Springs

Export ICS

Sun 19th Apr 2020

Venue Details

West Haigh is sloping, runnable beech and birch woodland with depressions and pits.  New Park Springs is a nature reserve planted on the old Grimethorpe Colliery tip. It is a mixture of hilly, rough and runnable open with fairly new planting which is extensively runnable. It makes a valuable addition to the previous West Haigh and Howell map.

Previous events have used West Haigh and Howell Woods, which is set up as a separate venue on this website.

Safety & risk

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.
