1. COVID-19 Update 14 April 2020

    We’re keeping this fire lit for you until you can make it to the woods.

    Sadly, the country is still in lockdown and forecasts indicate that there will be no change until at least the end of the April.  Currently, we consider it unlikely that we will run any courses before 15th May in Devon.  The Staffordshire courses on the 29th May look more likely but we will work within the guidelines of Public Health England.

    Unfortunately, our Applied Level 3 Course in Scotland at the end of this month will be postponed.  Sorry folks!

    We will keep you updated.  In the meantime, please check our Facebook page for more information and updates.  Don’t forget to ‘like’ it.  Thank you.

    Please keep safe and well.  Once we’ve beaten this virus, we’ll be in the woods, ready to run the best courses ever!

  2. COVID-19 update

    COVID-19 has left us all with a degree of uncertainty.  If you want to know whether your course is running or not, please contact us on:
