Course Map


The start is on Wood Lane. There is a short (about 400m) road run followed by a 100m lane at the back of Wickersley School
A sharp turn right takes a path iinto and through Wickersley Wood emerging (right) on to a discretionary dirt path which reaches First Lane
From First Lane a dirt field path descends due south to Second Lane.
On road at Second Lane, the course turns left (eastwards), becomes a rough track after 200m past Winthrop Gardens (open on the day) and after 100m becomes a field-side path on rough grass.
The path becomes easier as it reaches King's Pond Plantation which it circuits outside to the left.
A kissing gate gives access to a short lane at the pond, then a long uphill road to Bramley Cemetery.
At the cemetery (top of the hill), course turns left on to Wood Lane (road, used by estate vehicles) which can be taken by pavement way or left edge of road. At the limit of the housing, an exit to Wood Lane track takes you back to the Wood.
First lap, turn left into the wood or Second Lap continue straight ahead to finish (400m) on Wood Lane

Age limit 15 on the day

If you're not near enough, find a course as similar as you can, run it and report that
Should be 5 miles approximately by my map but Helen Doyle's trace (above, many thanks Helen) shows 4,03 miles.
What is certain is it shows the difficulty of tracing a course through a dense wood.

Many distant runners enjoy matching the terrain
