New Fancy View detail
At the end of Leg 3, when you encounter the Speech House road, turn left onto it (run on the grass verge), cross the road safely and then enter the New Fancy car park, then make your way to the top of New Fancy view to finish.
Leg 4 starts at the top. The best way to pick up the cycle trail from the top of New Fancy view is to turn left near the top and descend the footpath to the car park. From here a track exits the rear of the car park (turn right) and joins the cycle trail in about 150m.
Leg 4 - 8.8 kms, 120m
Leg 4 starts from the top of New Fancy View and then picks up the Forest of Dean Family Cycle Trail (via Dilke) all the way to the junction with the Wysis Way (Drybrook Rd station SO 633145), then along the Wysis Way to Speculation car park. SO 613135. New fancy is one the forest car parks that is free.
Leg 5 - 7.5 kms, 240m
Leg 5 starts on the other side of the road from the Speculation car park - space is limited. It follows the Wysis Way to Hillersland. From here the race route deviates from National Trails and seeks the best footpath alongside the B4432 to gain the Ferry at Symonds Yat (East side, SO 561160). Speculation car park is also fee.
Leg 6 - 8.6 kms, 150m
Leg 6 starts on the west side of the Symonds Yat Ferry. You will need to pay for your crossing to get there (or run/walk via Biblins bridge). It follows the footpath on the west of the Wye until Biblins Bridge, then continues on Wye Valley Walk on the north and west of the Wye all the way to Monmouth and finishes in a pull-in near Topstack. SO 514127. Parking at Symonds Yat may be tight and you need to pay.
Leg 7 - 10.6 kms, 450m
Leg 7 starts on the other side of the road from Topstack in Monmouth and joins the Offas Dyke path up to the Kymin, past the Naval temple, through Redbrook and finishes at Bigsweir Bridge SO 539051. Car parking - the exit road from the School next to Topstack has spaces, so does the school/sports centre.
Leg 8 - 5.2 kms,100m
Leg 8 starts at Bigsweir Bridge and follow Offas Dyke by the river all the way to Brockweir Bridge SO 539011. There is limited parking on the north of Bigsweir Bridge but further south and a short distance to walk, at a road junction, there is sufficient space.
Leg 9 - 6.3 kms, 275m
Leg 9 starts at Brockweir Bridge and crosses over to the west side of the Wye and follow the Wye Valley Walk to below Wyndcliffe at the bottom of the 365 steps. SO 529973. When you join the road in Tintern run on the pavement on the left hand side until a crossing can be safely made to the pavement on the right. This is a busy road.
There is plenty of space in Brockweir for cars up the hill towards McKenzie Hall on the side of the road - please do not clutter the main village - be considerate to residents - the future viability of the event is at risk.
Leg 10 - 4 kms, 160m
The 'Creber' leg. Leg 10 starts in the car park on the other side of the road to the finish of leg 9 at the bottom of 365 steps below Wyndcliffe, then follows the Wye Valley Walk all the way to Chepstow Leisure centre (the finish). However... there will be a deviation from the WVW at one point to take runners off-piste. This deviation will be well marked (the only course markings on the entire Wyedean relay). Runners on this leg need to be aware that the terrain may be 'challenging'. Lots of space to park cars in the car park opposite 365 steps descent.
