Bowland trails offered the event a superb varied course. A fast grass start, then varying winding trails through the woods, over peaty trails, hard packed road, mud and mossy grass to ensure you and your canine partner stayed on your toes and paws. It really had something for everyone and was guaranteed to challenge all competitors.

Bikejor and Scooters ran the longer course both days. The Junior & Relay teams will had a 1.2km trail that was mostly in view for spectators in its entirety.
