Elmswell 60 Minute Score Course

This course is situated in the village of Elmswell, between Stowmarket & Bury St Edmunds. If driving to the village you can park at the Blackbourne Community Centre, & the marked 'Start/Finish' is just to the south of the car park. If you live locally you may start at any of the checkpoints, whichever is most convenient, & plan your route from 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!
