This winter's North West Night League (NWNL) series commences in November. This event is the second in the series.
The Night Green and Night Blue courses are for experienced orienteers, whereas the Night Orange course is for anyone wanting to gain night navigation experience. This event is not suitable for novices unless accompanied by an experienced adult.
The Hameldon area is mostly open fell with many brown, black and blue features, plus some woodland in the lower reaches. The area includes a large disused quarry with many pits, crags and boulders. Any dangerously high or deep rock features are marked as impassable. Part of the terrain is high and exposed, so dress according to the weather conditions.
WHISTLES and WATERPROOF JACKETS and RESERVE LIGHTING are MANDATORY and must be worn or carried. To cope with wind, rain/snow and cold. Carrying hats, gloves, additional thermal layers and waterproof trousers may also be necessary. Be prepared!
This event is pre-entry and pre-pay only, via SIEntries. Entries up to and including 2nd December (race day) up to 18:00 (first start time) will be at the late entry rate, but only up to the number of printed maps available. Cash EOD entries cannot be accepted.
