Venue: Bampton Common and Helton Fell. This is a westward extension of the area used for the Compass Sport Cup and Trophy event in March 2019 ( https://www.bl.routegadget.co.uk/rg2/#119 ) and now includes Loadpot Hill and Bonscale Pike.

The car park and finish are at High Howe farm NY491192, 4km SW of Helton. The start is within 200m of the car park
 
Terrain: Runability is generally good but with some marshy sections that can be hard going particularly after wet weather. It is mostly grassy but with patches of bracken (mapped) and low heather. There are sections of rock and contour detail.
 
Courses (provisional):
>  Long 18.5km, 700m climb
>  Medium 12.5km, 450m climb
>  Short 7.7km, 280m climb 
>  Very Short 4.9km, 170m climb
 
Map: 1:12,500 for Long and Medium. 1:10,000 for Short and Very Short
 
Entries: Close 19th September. Some late entry will be available subject to map availability but you must contact the organisers ( BLdanandkaren@gmail.com )  in advance to confirm. There will be no entry on the day.
 
Start Times: 10:00 – 12:00, but those on the long course should start before 11am (unless you know you are very fast!).
 
Courses close 3:30.
 
Dogs: Permitted in the car park and on courses but must be on a lead
 
Pairs: You are very welcome to run as a pair – OMM training perhaps.
 
Refreshments: Hopefully we will be able to provide tea and cake at the finish
 
Queries: Contact the planners/organisers Karen and Dan Parker
 
Covid: Everyone who attends will need to follow the 'Participant Code of Conduct' which can be found on the following British Orienteering news page Return to Orienteering Guidance for the UK
