We welcome you to our biggest event of the year, the Ace of Herts, a National event which is a round of the South East Orienteering League. It’s not just for experts, there are courses suitable for everybody and help for newcomers.
Ashridge East is a fine area of gently undulating deciduous woodland with a scarp slope to the south with areas of contour and vegetation detail. The latter is only visited to any extent by the longer courses.
The going is generally very fast with some limited areas of denser woodland. In the southeastern part of the eastern section in particular, there are many more brambles, obscuring many previously-used control sites. Courses have been planned so that through the brambliest bits, path choice is critical – and few of the paths are straight.
The major and large paths can be very muddy, making straight routes through the forest more attractive. The National Trust have asked that if you do run along paths, you follow the main line even if it is wet or muddy; running round the edges damages the vegetation much more.
