Local level event

Explanation of Event levels

  • Training events are non competitive events used for training and coaching, aimed at members of the club, but they can attract people from neighbouring clubs, and are often ideal for newcomers to try the sport.
  • Local events are usually low key and in the 'localised' area, ideal for newcomers to try the sport. Most clubs run some 'mini series' throughout the year as local mid week events.
  • Regional events attract participants from around the local Region.
  • National events are high quality competitions that will attract people from far away,
  • Major events are Major Events such as a British Championships or the annual JK competition.

The entrance to Springwood car park is at the traffic lights where the B6246 joins the A671 dual carriageway. Take care at this junction as there may be fast approaching traffic or turning traffic. Bring coins to pay at the meter.

Take care on exit from the car park, which is controlled by the traffic lights.

Map / Terrain

The main area is open deciduous woodland with a good path network. The sloping terrain is mostly runnable, but with patches of bramble and regenerating rhododendrons. A tunnel leads to a second small area of woodland and a larger area of open fields with contour features from past activity.
