Event Information

Walk to start on Day 2
Please note, there is a 2km walk to and from the main start/finish which rises steeply in the last km to access the moor. The White and Yellow courses are not affected as they have a separate start and finish (600m walk and courses located in the forest)

Parking for Day 2
A number plate recognition system is in operation in Hamsterley Forest. Parking is covered in part by the entry fee but you must ensure you collect a code from download on the day and obtain a ticket at the machine near the Visitor's Centre before leaving. You will need to input your registration number - this will then register your car for free parking.
