Foxton Locks is a unique location that brings with it a set to of special challenges. It is both a country park and a working canal network, that will be operating for the early part of the evening.

Car parking: the bottom car park, on the grassy field before you reach the tarmac section , so as to leave that for visitors to the park and the Pub.
There is FREE parking after 5.00 pm.

Long: two sprint loops, with a rest between sprint 1 and 2 . Total about 3.5Km
Medium: two sprint loops ( but shorter than the long one) with a rest between. Total about 2.5 Km
Short: one sprint loop. About 1Km

For all courses ( which are of similar difficulty) only small training Kites will be used.

WARNING:Because of the working canal network it is important that everyone reads the Safety notices provided at registration.
