Short course 3.6km - 11 controls (Distances between controls)
The controls are fire hydrant signs. You will be asked to record the lower number on the hydrant sign.
Some of the signs are ‘homemade’ – but still look like Hydrants!
Please bring a pen or pencil to mark the control card and map bag if it is wet.
Under 16’s must be accompanied by an adult.
Bring clothing and footwear appropriate for the weather conditions. Water will not be provided. Please bring your own to rehydrate.
High visibility clothing is strongly recommended.
As with any street orienteering this requires participants to cross roads and you are asked to take due care and attention at all times.
There may be dog walkers, cyclists and residents using the pavements and footpaths – be aware and give them priority.
Some roads in Halstead do not have pavements – so take extra care. Also, Halstead has numerous alleys and footpaths that are not lit - extra caution needed if used.
Note: It will be getting towards dusk – so a head and/or hand-held torch is recommended.
Participants take part at their own risk.
Toilets are NOT available.
