This Regional event offers colour coded courses for all standards of orienteer from experts to novices.  We recommend that first time orienteers are accompanied by a family member or someone in their support bubble.

Directions / Parking

Signposted off Queen's Park Road, Burnley. From the gate, proceed along the access road and park as directed.

If you are unfamiliar with Burnley, the best approach is to find Burnley Turf Moor football ground, then proceed north on the A6144, Belvadere Road, turn right at the first lights by the new Fire Station on to Ormerod Road, then after 400m left at the roundabout on to Queen's Park Road. After 250m enter the gate on the right and follow the access road.

Map / Terrain

Brun Valley Forest Park is adjacent to more formal parks (children, no dogs permitted), so there is a combination of fast grassland and traditional forest.

The forest area runs along either bank of the River Brun and its tributaries. It is a patchwork of mature standing forest, old mine workings partly covered with regenerated young plantation and some contoured fields. There is a network of paths for public access around Rowley Lake and the forest. The new pedestrian river bridge makes planning the shorter courses much easier. See course information for river crossing details.

Other users: Brun Valley is popular with walkers, runners, cyclists and horse riders. Please give way to other users. There are two vehicle access roads that run partway through the competition area. There is very little traffic as they serve only a handful of properties and some small car parks. All courses will use these roads, so do take special care when you run across or along them.

Further event details can be found on the PFO event webpage.

Following British Orienteering advice concerning Covid-19 restrictions, this event is pre-entry and pre-pay only.

Everyone who attends will need to follow the 'Participant Code of Conduct' which can be found on the British Orienteering website here
