Terrain and area
Mostly open runnable beech or pine forest with some lovely STEEP sided valleys, and a comprehensive track and path network. There are some large areas of cleared forest with dry brashings left after removal of Ash DieBack infected Ash trees. Mapped as open with undergrowth.

The park is crisscrossed in the Northern half with well marked and very popular Mountain bike trails. These have been mapped with a purple dashed path symbol. Competitors MUST STAY OFF THESE ROUTES. Not ALL mountain bikers stick to the official tracks so juniors, in particular, should be alert.

There is a lot of history in the southern part of QECP. Medieval field boundaries, remains of a Roman Villa, even prehistoric hut circle bases. Plus extensive views to the coast and the Isle of Wight.

Toilets are available in the Visitor Centre.

Clothing and equipment
Full leg cover and footwear suitable for the terrain must be worn. Whistles must be carried. In adverse weather we may ask you to wear a cagoule or similar waterproof top. Please bring your own water or other drinks.

Dogs are allowed but must be kept on a lead and under control at all times.

There is a 300m uphill walk from the car park to the start. The route will be marked with red / white streamers. Please allow yourself good time to be at the start for your chosen start window.

EmiTags and maps issued at the start.

The finish is in a field adjacent to the car park 100 m away.
