Event descriptionSheffield University Orienteering and Fell Running Club (ShUOC) invite you to an exciting weekend of racing on the 16th-17th July 2011. The Harvester Relays return to Ecclesall Woods and Limb Valley, the birthplace of the Harvester - a complex woodland in the suburbs of Sheffield. A middle distance race on the Saturday and an urban race on the Sunday add to what shall be a spectacular weekend of racing.
Terrain descriptionEcclesall Woods is a runnable complex suburban woodland broken into three parts by minor roads. Technical difficulty is provided by a mass of thickets that are comprehensively mapped. The current map was resurveyed by Oli Johnson in 2007 and has been updated in 2010. Limb Valley is formed by the grounds of an old country house and will be visited by the long courses only. It includes a steep forested hillside in the North and West of the area and a vague wooded flat area.
