The historic medieval City of Norwich has boundaries of the river Wensum on the east side, with parts of the old city wall visible in the south, west, and north. This is the area the competition map depicts, with the Castle on higher ground and Cathedral on lower ground, near the river. The city is laced with small passageways and many areas are pedestrianised.
The courses are planned to avoid traffic as much as possible, but competitors do have to cross roads between pedestrian areas. For this reason, under BOF rules, juniors who are still under 16 years old on 31st October can only enter courses 6 or 7, which have marshalled road crossings. These courses use the same terrain as the senior courses passing through the city centre and old parts of Norwich.
Newcomers are recommended to do Course 7 which is suitable for novice adults with limited or no orienteering experience, and for families or small groups. It is also suitable for pushchairs and wheelchair users; we advise that anyone in a wheelchair has a suitably able person with them due to one of the roads having small cobbles making it uneven though passable. Course 6 is suitable for groups and individuals with more orienteering experience.
