There are two courses, 5K and 2.5K, Children can run if accompanied by an adult or responsible guardian. If you let me know if you are coming and don’t know what you are letting yourself in for, we will arrange for an informal introduction to an orienteering ‘master-class’ before you start. If you are still unsure, again, let me know and we can try and arrange company around the route.
Basically, you are given a map with clues on it and you have to navigate to the clues ‘check-points’ and electronically check in. You will need a head torch, whistle and a compass. The cost is £5 entry, £3 for juniors. Registration between 18:00 and 19:25, and as it is electronic timing, you go when you are ready.
These are fun but frustrating events (when you can’t find a check-point). You can run in groups, so please don’t feel you have to run on your own.
