Where is it

The route is 5ish miles around Crowthorne Woods which is the bit of Woodland to the North East of Crowthorne, between the Crowthorne bypass and the B3348 and the A3095, you know the bit that was on fire a couple of years ago.

Do I need to know anything new this year?

At FinchCoasters we are very sensitive to our feathered friends so we would like to make sure that any spectators stay out of the undergrowth and on the main tracks and also keep their furry four legged canine friends on a lead so we dont disturb the lovely twittering birds from nesting.

Do you have a Route Map available so I can see what I am letting myself in for?

Of Course, please see the map below.  If you click on the Mapmyrun logo at the top it will open up in a bigger window.
