Final Details have been sent by email to all participants - please email hrkieniewicz@hotmail.co.uk if you have not received yours. 

A classic moorland and valley orienteering challenge with Steep-sided valleys .Exposed open moorland, rising to 516m o.d. Runnability is generally good with an extensive path network and rides. The vegetation is a mixture of grass, heather, bracken and gorse. All steep slopes have scattered crags and some scree. Both bracken, heather and gorse reduce runnability. Human activity makes some paths less obvious and recent bracken cutting makes the terrain faster than shown, or it might not.

Final course distances below – these are straight line measurements between points, so courses will be longer than shown:
