Nash Woods 2021
Date of event: Sun 14th Nov 2021
Level of event: Local (D)
Nearest town: Presteigne
Please note NRW have requested the following:-
Biosecurity – Orienteering is throughout the woodland and off hard standing tracks/forest roads so biosecurity (at organisers expense) will need to be in place – e.g. removing debris from footwear at start and prior to leaving Nash car park – to help mitigate against phytophthora spread to other areas.
The terrain is mainly wooded with conifer and deciduous trees situated on a hill which runs the length of the area, with steep sections in places. The ridge of the hill runs west to east with the north side in Wales and the south side in England. The conifer areas are covered in brashings (small cut branches), which makes running difficult; the deciduous areas have varying degrees of undergrowth. The area has a number of forestry tracks and numerous paths some indistinct.
Runners need to be aware that the area is popular with other users, walkers with dogs, horse riders and mountain bikers so when crossing tracks or paths please take care.
