Notes (mainly for families and older competitors): The minimum distance on foot from parking to the start and finish, which will be close together, is 1.2km on public footpaths. The area is not suitable for a white course, and shadowing for less experienced yellow course competitors is recommended.. Yellow and orange courses will include some taped routing to connect line features.
