Event Details

Wednesday 9 March 2016 Ashby Map Runners SI AIR Event at Ashby

Event Level: Local
Notes: Bring your SI Active dibbers
But free dibber hire if not.

The courses
Test loop in gym 30m – for trying out the touch free punching experience.
There will be printouts for this course where you can compare speeds against traditional punching, but the test course will not have published results
Short (Yellow) suitable for novices- 1.1km 14 controls
Long (has some tricky route choices and crosses car parking and minor roads) 2.7km 15 controls

You may run a second course non competitively after the first for free. You may want to run a course a second time with a traditional dibber for a comparison?

Map revised 2016

Discount scheme
Competitors will receive a £6 discount card to offset against the cost of purchasing a SIAC (touch-free) dibber within three weeks of the event. These dibbers can be used as a normal dibber at non-touch-free events where they behave like a type 11 with an additional beep from the dibber after punching.

Please check back shortly before the event for any late information.
