If you have a smartphone you can download the free MapRunF App. It has five Wythenshawe courses from which to choose.  As a beginner you are probably best with the Yellow or Orange courses. They are shorter, and easier and the App can show you where you are as you navigate your way around. Lots of support on how to use the App and free PDF map down-loads can be found at

Good luck!
