I've not done one of the Centurion events but volunteered at the SDW50 and the route was very well marked with red and white tape in the bushes etc. and orange spray on the ground in places where you might go wrong. So I think, as well as the NDW signs it will be well signed and you will be fine.

Good luck! :-)

I'm doing it :-)

I know the route pretty well as I run around the NDW quite a lot but, as .B. say, you'll be fine.
The NDW is pretty well signposted and Centurion make a very good job of course marking. I doubt very much that you'll go wrong.

See you at the start :-)

Too Much Water
Some locals would say too good a job of course marking, i.e. non-temporary spray markings still present several months later.
