Mature runnable pine forest, generally flat with sand dunes giving contour detail but there has been recent felling by the estate for regeneration, and older re-generation activities now have young trees on them.  The terrain is rougher in these regeneration strips, than elsewhere in the forest. There is a good track network throughout giving good options for the white to light green courses.  Courses are starting in the east of the area, which will give the courses a different feel from previous events.  There are several uncrossable ditches in the area (indicated as a blue line with black border) and we mean uncrossable with vertical 2m high walls. Crossing points are indicated on all maps, and will be taped but competitors are free to choose which crossing point they use.
