The Cottesmore Scurry course makes the most of the famous Cottesmore Hunt Tuesday Country around the village of Knossington on the Rutland/Leicestershire border.
The main race begins at 12 noon and covers approximately three miles. First past the post wins.
The Foxhunter will start shortly afterwards and will cover approximately two miles. the nearest the the optimum time wins.
There are two different courses:
The start line is near Bleak House and the course heads briefly North.
The course then bends to the right (East) and downhill.
Then we bend right again to fence 3 and 4.
The course now turns left and uphill.
The next turning marker is not until (possibly) Fence 9 so the routes here can diverge. photos show the marked route and some of the options.
After Fence 12 the course turns sharply right-handed and proceeds through and open gateway uphill to Fence 13.
The start of the Foxhunter course is between Fence 3 and Fence 4 of the Scurry course, facing in the opposite direction.
After fence 7 the course turns back round to the right and heads through an open gate.
After fence 10 the course turns North to Fence 11.
From 15 there is a stretch downhill and through gaps in a broken hedge before turning left to Fence 16.
