Don’t forget to renew your BMBO membership and if you had entered for the cancelled Slingsby event in February please email me.

Dave Lloyd’s Planner’s update:

  • All controls are situated on or close to a minor road or a forest road which should provide fast, but not necessarily the shortest routes in in any conditions except snow.
  • Anything off the main tracks at this time of year will be slow or very slow and some of the steep sections very technical.
  • With the event centre based at the Keldy cafe, there will be the luxury of hot drinks snacks and light meals before and afterwards.
  • All paths and tracks around the site are out of bounds except for the forest roads going north and west and the service road from the south.
  • Helpers should follow the signs to and park outside of reception.
  • The main parking will be on the High Muffles forest road north of the cafe.
  • This will also be one of the two route choices from the start and back to the finish so please take care whilst changing and when finishing.
