Entries:

There are no limits on the number of participants at this event. Only pre-entries are allowed with no entry on the day.

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. 

Any SROC members who do not own a dibber can request - contact Chris Roberts - to collect one at the event and keep it for the foreseeable future.

Courses:

  • Score. Visit as many controls as you are able or wish to within the 60 minute time limit. This is the option to choose if you are new or quite new to orienteering. 
  • Odds & Evens Score. Visit as many controls as you are able to or wish within the 60 minute time limit, but you must choose to start either on odd numbered controls or even numbered controls. When you have either visited all the controls of one type (odds or evens), or you decide you have done enough, change over to the other type. Once you have changed you can't change back, so be careful and check control codes before punching.

There are NO loose control descriptions, but they are on the map.  Controls (including the finish) are in beacon mode so they can be punched contactlessly if you have a SIAC.

Terrain:

Williamson Park is an area of mature parkland, built on the site of an old quarry. There are many paths and complex contour features. One of the challenges is to pick the optimum route from several alternatives.

Map Scale: 1:5000

Start: 

15 minutes start blocks, starts between 12.00 and 13.00.

The Start is close to the parking area. Only go to the start just prior to starting. 

Remember to:

  • Sanitise your hands using the sanitiser provided and keep at least 2m apart.
  • Clear and check your dibber

Please maintain approximately one minute (or more) intervals between starters, physically punch the start and then pick up your map from the box provided (please ensure you only take one).

Finish/Download:

Please move away from the Finish quickly, and proceed directly to download forming a queue if necessary keeping at least 2m apart. Use the sanitiser provided before you download and take the splits – these are pre cut and you do not need to touch the printer. Please move away from download quickly.

Results will not be displayed on the day but will be on the website www.sroc.org in the evening.

Facilities:

We expect that the public toilets in the park will be available for use by orienteers.

First Aid – a first aid kit will be available at download for people to self administer.

Travel Directions/parking:

Parking will be in the public car park accessible from Wyresdale Road. This is a pay and display car park.
