The start is a few yards through the right hand gate as you enter Chanterelle Car Park and follows the main path down to the stream

then turning left until the end of the tree line before turning right and climbing the grassy hill and through the hedge before turning sharp right. The route then traverses the paths through the woods (see the map of the route) before returning to the stream and following the path as far as the railway line. Turn left along the gravel track before climbing up and then back down the hill to the concrete “bridge”, crossing this and climbing again to the finish by the car park. Where possible, permanent “parkrun” waymarkers are located on posts around the course.
