Top Tips for your visit
Wear sensible footwear – the Great Ryedale Maze is an outdoor event on fine sandy soil, so it might well be dusty and dirty, and if it has rained it could be muddy!
Bring layers of clothing with you to keep you warm/cool/dry/wind-protected and generally comfortable in all conditions – the weather can change very quickly.
Slip, Slop, Slap, Slide when it’s hot:
Slip on light clothing to keep you covered
Slop on the sunblock – even if it’s cloudy the sun can burn.
Slap on a hat or cap
Slide on the shades!
