The Cranwich area makes an ideal race venue. The trails offer varying distances on packed sand and grassy surfaces. However, there are some short stretches of loose flints. Dog boots should not be needed for fit feet. The terrain is mostly flat.
Exact distances and trails will be dictated by weather conditions over the race weekend. Any trail changes will be posted on the race notice board.
Cranwich is not used for husky training. Please help us to encourage the Forestry Commission to allow us to continue to schedule races at this venue. It is anticipated that as usual in this area, there will be some interest from the general public. Normal courtesy from all competitors will be appreciated.
