Directions
The entrance to the wood which will be used for this event is close to the main gate of Dreghorn Barracks, Redford Road, Edinburgh.

If you live in the City it is very easy to get to this event by public transport. Service 16, Lothian Buses, stops very close to the event.

If you need to drive to get to the event the postcode given is for nearby houses in Dreghorn Park. This is for general area guidance only e.g. for satnavs, please don't turn into or park within Dreghorn Park. Parking will be on the main road, Redford Road, which is wide near the wood. The part of Redford Road closest to the start and finish is near the flashing 30mph sign. Please take care when entering and exiting your car as the road is busy.

Although there is no parking restriction there, it would be helpful if you could avoid parking directly outside the Barracks.

Registration and Start Times
No Registration or Enquiries on the day.

STARTS: From 1.00pm to 2.30pm with course closure at 3.30pm (It is dark early in January. Controls will start to be brought in at 3.30pm so if you think you'll take a long time to complete your course please enter early so you can choose an early start time.)

The Start and Finish will both be easy walking distance from the Redford Road entrance to the wood.
