This course is situated in the Cedars Park area of Stowmarket, to the E of the town centre. The marked 'Start/Finish' is near the Community Centre. Parking is 'on street', or, if using the shopping or refreshment facilities, in the car parks close to where Gun Cotton Way meets the A1120. You may start at any of the checkpoints, whichever is most convenient, & plan your route from (& back to) there. This is a timed course - you'll receive points for each control you visit, & have them deducted if you're over the time allowed!
Although it is a quiet residential area the course involves crossing Navigation Approach, Mortimer Road & Gun Cotton Way: caution is required & under 16s really must be accompanied by an adult.
