This event has been planned by Border Liners juniors. Originally to be held in November 2020 it has been a while in the making but we have finally got it off ground. We hope you enjoy your course!

General Information

This event is being run in accordance with the British Orienteering guidance for resumption of orienteering in England. In order to participate in this event you must agree to comply with the Participant Code of Conduct.

Travel Directions, Parking & Download

Since the event was originally planned we have located a parking field. The 'event centre' (parking and download) is at NY265369. This is on the minor road between Aughertree Fell and Longlands. The event will not be signposted.There is no reliable 'nearby' postcode for sat navs, nor are there public transport options to get to this event. What3words: afterglow.chestnuts.luck

Traffic is very light but still take care entering and leaving the parking field.

Parking £2. It would help if you could bring the correct money please.

Terrain

Open exposed fell with a mixture of rough & tussocky grass, marshes, some crags where there have been old quarries (long since disused), boulders and sink hole depressions.

There may be sheep and cattle grazing on the fell. Do give cattle a wider berth than usual if they appear to have calves.

Collect your map from download before proceeding to your start.There are two starts – one for Green, Orange and Yellow, and one for Blue (see map below). The route to the starts will be taped. Neither start will be actively manned. If there is a queue at your start wait (at an appropriate distance) for about 1 minute after the previous person started.
