South London Orienteers is offering you the opportunity to run on Holmwood Common and is hosting the OK NUTS Trophy. Please note there are a maximum of 250 entries being accepted due to car parking limitations - enter early to avoid disappointment.

Eligibility for the four trophies are as follow:

  • Men: Brown
  • Women: Blue
  • M16: Green
  • W16 Green

Entries will be available online (subject to map availability) until 11:45 on the day of the event.

Nine courses will be provided with the following distances (subject to final planning and controlling):

  • Brown - 9.1km
  • Blue - 7.2km
  • Short Blue - 6.1km
  • Green - 4.9km
  • Short Green - 3.6km
  • Light Green - 3.7km
  • Orange - 3.1km
  • Yellow -  2.1km
  • White - 1.4km

Please note the Brown course has over 30 controls. If you are using a version 5 Si card (nos 1 - 499,999) or a version 8 SI card (nos 2,000,001 - 2,999,999) please hire a SIAC as they can only handle 30 controls.

Holmwood Common consists mostly of natural woodland on gentle slopes with good path network and lots of vegetation changes, together with streams, ditches and gullies.  Vegetation boundaries are usually blurred on the ground and should not be used for fine navigation.  Bramble and bracken covers much of the common and all the courses have been planned, to give sensible routes avoiding all but the smallest areas. The map has been produced and updated by Charlie Turner using LIDAR data, scale of 1:7,500 and updated as far as possible for summer vegetation.

The entrance into the car park is narrow. Please arrive by 11:30 and no departures before 11:30.

Car Parking, SIAC hire and download are in the assembly field. Starts are 175m from assembly and the finish is 750m away. The route from the finish to the car park passes very close to the start.

Start times are between 10:00 and 12:00 - Please select a 15 minute start block but we are effectively operating a turn up and go policy. Courses close at 14:30.

We anticipate that Tom and Julie's food wagon will be in attendance.

Please ensure you familiarise yourself with the British Orienteering Participant Code of Conduct.
