S/J/V/W Course
The S/J/V/W course will be slightly different to last year with more use of paths and other sections of the park. The climb alongside the golf club and fast descent to the bottom field are back in. The majority of the course is ride-able with only the steps to the finishing area requiring those finely tuned dismounts and remounts! S/J/V/W race will start over in the big field near car park 3.


Youth Course
The Youth race will start at the Finish line.

Riders will be able to sign on at Beacon Golf Club. The Golf Club will be serving hot food and drinks throughout the day. Toilets are at the Rangers Centre, not in the golf club. Please do not enter the golf club wearing muddy footwear. For those with sat navs, the postcode for Beacon Country Park is WN8 7RU. There are 3 car parks within walking distance of the Golf Club. Please use the other car parks when the 1st is full.

Arm Numbers & Pits
Arm numbers are to be worn on your right arm. There is strictly no jet-washers allowed in the pit area.
Jet-washers can be used but away from the pit area to prevent soaking all the other pits crews.
