Map / Terrain
Fearnoch was originally mapped for its path and road network suited for courses up to technical difficulty 3 (including Long Orange) and bike-O. Club members have since added in some detail to the more open wooded areas and courses visit some of these areas. Several areas have been felled in recent years or suffer from windblow. Courses avoid the areas most affected by brashings or fallen trees but those on the more technically difficult courses should choose their route choices carefully to avoid the dark green and hatched green areas.

Registration opens at 10.30. Start times from 11.00 to 12.00. Courses close at 1.30.
