Competitors should beware of someunmapped narrow streams concealed by grass, and there are also a few loose strands of farmer’s wireinplaces.All courses have been planned to avoid a steep ravine in the north of the area.
White and Yellow courses have a taped route between two controls in order to ascendthe hill. Please make juniors aware of this prior to their runs.
