York University East Campus

Thursday 28th December

Around the complex campus buildings and the surrounding woodland and grasslands.
This is a mix of urban and cross country style. The campus buildings are not linear and have some complex garden areas and paths between them. The surrounding area is now maturing such that the surrounding woodland has more complexity, and challenge. Longer courses will also use the area of the York Sports Village at the eastern end.

We also offer a sprint event, which is also available as an add on to those feeling fit after their main run!

A mix of extensive campus buildings that are not linear and their gardens which have complex mounds and ditches. This is all set in a large landscaped parkland with woodland plantation now maturing, and open and scrubby grassland. The area also includes the York sport village, the main building, out door football courts and the cycletrack.

Dogs are allowed on the campus, but beware the geese population (and rabbits).
