Please arrive ready for your pre-agreed start time.

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.
The course is on roads, pavements & trails.
The Long course crosses the main road (A130) and there are two mandated crossing points at pelican
crossings. There is a small park along the way which closes at 8pm, most competitors will have
passed the park by this time (you can run round the outside if it is shut).

Safety
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.
Note: It will be getting towards dusk – so a head and/or hand-held torch is recommended (sunset is at 19:42).

Participants take part at their own risk.

Facilities
There are toilets available in Sainsburys Supermarket. Don't forget your mask.

Post Event
Unfortunately, at present we cannot nominate a venue for post event deliberations due to Covid19.
