Minley Manor, Yateley
The 12-hour race is being staged at Minley Manor near Yateley and a 7 mile course has been designed – by Jon Lucas and Paul Howard – with typical Gorrick style, so expect lots of singletrack through pine forests interspersed by short fire roads and little in the way of grassy fields.
