Courses make maximum use of the two forest blocks either side of the central, uncrossable wet mire of Morden Bog. The landscape has good topography with many re-entrants so there will be climb. Route choice will be added to by OOB areas (wet mires and areas of open heathland) that we are not allowed to cross.
Event centre is on the Forestry England site at Coldharbour
Car parking is on forestry tracks near the event centre.
The event will be solely using the southern area of Wareham Forest, which is almost all wooded. The area has been recently thinned, which makes runnability good, and hopefully the bracken will have died back by January. The landscape has good topography with many re entrants so there will be climb. The two main blocks of woodland are separated by a central valley mire (Morden bog) which is uncrossable. The courses will have several areas of OOB as we are not allowed to cross any mires nor areas of open heathland. This will add to the routechoice on most courses.
