Situated in the centre of Harrogate, Valley Gardens is a mostly very runnable mixture of park and woods – expect this to be faster than most night events. However, the western third of the area is, in places, thickly wooded with some windblown and has limited paths.

For beginners, the eastern part of the area makes for an excellent introduction to the subtle arts of night orienteering (don’t forget your headtorch)! The start and finish will be at the ‘town’ end of the park by the Sun Pavilion Cornwall Road, Harrogate HG1 2PQ with car parking on streets nearby to the north. This could also be a chance to get ahead with your Christmas shopping!

MAPS: 1:4000, 2.5m contours, survey and Oct-Nov 2023 update by Quentin Harding, using the ISSprOM 2019-2 standard (i.e. sprint symbols). The fodder rack symbol has been used to represent the location of Frisbee Golf posts. NOTE: In order to fit the map onto an A4 page, the NORTH arrows are not parallel with the edge of the page but offset by 10 degrees.
