Pre-entries are preferred. There will be limited entry on the day, so long as we have maps. On-line entries are open up to 7pm on the day before the event. Please enter on-line if you can. This makes things easier for us and secures your place in the event. If you have any problems using the entry system please contact for assistance. Entry fees are £7 for adults, £3 for juniors (under 21) and students. Please note, these fees are the same for individuals, pairs or small groups. e.g. two adults running together would pay just £7, not £14. There is space on the entry page to add details of any other persons sharing your entry.

Entries are free for SROC junior members. Contact for the discount code.

If you are a newcomer to the sport and do not have  a an orienteering dibber (to record visiting the controls, also called an SI-Card) then please indicate that you need to borrow an SI-Card. 


Orange  – suitable for Juniors with some map reading experience and family groups with no experience

Green  – experienced orienteers only. A physically and technically demanding course

Score - suitable for beginners and experienced orienteers. Navigate around your choice of controls to maximise your score. Each control visited is worth 10 points, there is a time limit of 60 minutes with a points penalty of 5 per minute (or part minute) late. Make sure you have a watch!

Controls are in beacon mode so they can be punched contactlessly if you have a SIAC. This does not apply to the dibbers available for hire.
