ADVANCE NOTICE: If you’re visiting Cannock Chase on the 12th of June, please bear in mind that some routes around Staffordshire will be blocked due to the IRONMAN 70.3 Staffordshire triathlon. This will last from 8:30am until 2:30pm. Full details on the event can be found on the IRONMAN website.
The biggest impact will be to Birches Valley Forest Centre, where our trails begin – the IRONMAN race route runs right past the car park entrance gate, and access to Birches Valley is only possible from Rugeley – along Penkridge Bank Road. There will be a one way system in place and the car park will exit onto Slitting Mill Road – this will be signposted on the day of the event. Please see the map above for full details on what roads are closed.
Update: We’ve also decided that due to the added description, we won’t be doing any trail building on the 12th June.
