Because the Urban Sprint involves road crossings, under 16s can only tackle this course if accompanied by a responsible adult at all times.
Last year’s Urban events concentrated on the area south of Lodge Grounds. This year will instead visit the newer housing to the east plus the seafront, town and harbour areas.
