Date of event: Sat 03rd Mar 2018
Level of event: Regional (C)
Nearest town: Newborough

“Newborough Forest”, a newly revised map for the event, on intricate, mostly runnable, forested sand dunes, but unusual for sand dunes, the area also has a rocky ridge, with steep crags. The area is a working woodland of Natural Resources Wales (NRW have taken over forestry responsibility in Wales), as well as a very popular outdoor area. It is bounded by an excellent beach with views over to Snowdonia and the Llyn Peninsula. Map scale 1:7,500, with contours at 2.5m. Different areas of the same map will be used for the two days. The event centre is the same for both days.
