Location and Directions
The cross country is the same location as last year in Sledmere Estate.

There is ample parking in the grounds of Sledmere which will be signposted from the road. There should be plenty of parking in the hall however there is alternative parking 200m past the entrance at the right hand turn to Malton. To get from the parking to the start there is a small walk back out onto the road, this will be signposted. Please don’t access the start by walking in front of the house as the Sykes family live there and this is crossing their front lawn!!
Toilets: The toilets are in the car park and will be open for the event. It’s a 10min walk/ 4min run from the toilets to the start so please leave enough time. Do not use any part of the grounds as a toilet – this is a private estate and we want to be able to use the course again
Getting to the Start
It is a 1/2 mile walk from the car park, see map below, make sure you use this route to get to the start.
Run in the private grounds of Sledmere estate. There is always a chance that the course will change slightly on the day so please follow the signs and marshals when running. The course is two laps and is either grass or fast chalk paths. Depending on the weather are no very muddy sections and no very steep hills; however there is a long steady climb of more than a mile on each lap. There could be three gates to climb over; however these may be opened on the day. Studded off road shoes or spikes are recommended.
Note: This is a private estate and we have permission to use it only on the day. You cannot go and run the course before the day of the race.
