Further details
Course Conditions: Friday am. The course is drying fast- yesterday the area off Munsbrough Lane to the wood was very wet, the side of lower Fenton Rd next to the wood, and a section on the top of the quarry circuit
However, the area does dry quickly and potentially it might be generally dry.

Weather Forecast: as at 11am Friday (BBC forecast) Dry until Sunday 9 am (light rain)

Footwear: trail or cross-country shoes advised. In drier conditions, road shoes are fine if they have some grip.
Spikes are not advised as there is a 300m stretch of stony track but runners have successfully raced it in spikes.
