There are numerous uncrossable marshes and creeks on the map, so take care with your route choice.
The major roads are marked as Out Of Bounds. Use under-passes or footpaths on bridges to cross the major roads and creeks.
Mowing in the past few weeks has improved the runnability, and the map was updated last week to indicate where the dense, long grass remains.
Palmerville Heritage Park, in the northern section of the map, is a designated off-leash dog area. Be aware that you may encounter dogs off the leash. Dog owners must have effective control of their dog at all times, whether it is on or off-leash.
Note: Some events may have more than 30 controls. If you have an SI Stick that can't hold more than 30 punches (eg. SICard5 and SICard8), then you will not get all your splits recorded.
