Fixby Flyer

Fixby and Bradley Woods

23 May 2021

YHOA Regional Event

Provisional Details

Assembly: Deighton Sports Centre, Huddersfield HD2 1JP. Streetmap

Due to the many routes that can be used to reach Deighton Sports Centre we do not intend to sign routes from the main roads but the entrance to the driveways of Deighton Sports Arena will be signed. Please use Sat Nav and check the streetmap link.
There should be the opportunity of a shower subject to Covid-19 restrictions in force at the time. Try not to clog the drains!

Car Parking: Adjacent to the Sports Centre.

Terrain: Bradley and Fixby are 4 small woods connected by paths and roads. The woods are generally deciduous and have many small paths especially in the east. Some parts especially in the centre have good contour features. There are significant areas of brambles but courses avoid the worst patches where possible. It may be quite muddy. Some courses for older Schools Competitors will have routes through built up areas on minor roads. Estate roads are generally quiet and only carry residential traffic but take care when crossing.

Runnability: Many paths are seasonable but generally visibility is good. Runnability is subject to brambles and young saplings. This wood has a dense footpath network and can be muddy.
Where transitioning between woods competitors must obey normal urban event rules and avoid all Olive Green areas such as private gardens.
The longer courses will cross a busy dual carriageway twice. There will be a map exchange and a 2-minute timed out crossing each way. This has been tested on a number of occasions and is adequate.
