Course Description:

Situated on a high plateau on the edge of the Yorkshire Moors, the trail is mainly flat with sone slight inclines and descents. The surface is of mainly grass, dirt, packed sand and a short stretch of smooth chalk forest road. Dog boots should not be needed for fit feet. Due to its elevation, the venue is prone to snow at this time of year.

Exact distances and trails will be dictated by weather conditions over the race weekend. Any changes will be posted on the race notice board.

Broxa is currently not used for husky training so we would like to make a good impression with the local Forestry to allow us to continue to use this venue for future events. It is generally not a busy forest, but as Scarborough is in close proximity there may be members of the public present. Normal courtesy from all competitors will be greatfully appreciated. Catering will be in attendance and toilets will be available.
