Notes: Urban Night Event Practice: Consider which orienteering skills are more significant at night? Make use of compass across open areas. Focus on these during your run.

Courses: Short (1.4Km), Medium (2.7Km) and Long (4.5Km). You can expect to run 40 percent longer than the crow flies.

Pre-Registration : Text or email the organiser(see below) before noon on Tues with the course and time you want to run in order to ensure a map is available.

Courses: Start, Finish and all control sites are identified by a GPS signal with no physical control kite or plaque. Do not tap ‘Go to Start’ until you are ready to go. Download App

Also advised are: Shoes with good grip as grass areas may be slippery; Handgel; Cagoules if wet;and a warm layer for afterwards as changing is not permitted.

Control descriptions: can be downloaded from the link above and also om the map.
