Beginners/Intermediate courses (White/Yellow/Orange). Try one, try two or do all three – same price. Instruction provided so a great event for beginners.
Course 1 will be all on trails – great for first time orienteers.
Course 2 has some off-trail sections but follows defined “handrails” to the controls e.g. a stone wall or stream
Course 3 has more off trail sections with the possibility of choosing the best route between controls.
For more advanced orienteers there will be two score events (get as many controls as you can in the time limit) The 90 minute event will have 20 controls- the optimal straight line route is about 8km. Whilst there are more points allocated for more difficult and remote controls there is also a time penanly for going over the 90 minutes. There will also be a 60 minute score event with 12 controls and an optimal straight line distance of 4.3km – i.e. somewhere beteen a Green/brown course).
Starts are from 10 a.m. with last starts at 1.00 p.m., courses will close at 2.30 p.m.
