Start and Finish
The ‘Start’ & ‘Finish’ are at the far end of the car park, near the playground. You are advised to use the footbridge to & from Chelmer Village from the start/finish.
Controls and Course Type
Course type - Both Score and Line, start & finish near the playground, towards the rugby clubhouse.
All of the controls are indicated by fire hydrants - you will hear the 'beep' when you are in the correct location.
On the Score course you should get as many controls as you can within 60 minutes.
There are 30 controls in total. You do not need to get them all and you can visit them in any order.
Controls score different numbers of points:
- Controls numbered 1 to 10 score 10 points
- Controls numbered 11 to 20 score 20 points
- Controls numbered 21 to 30 score 30 points
For each minute or part-minute you are late back, you will lose 10 points. The highest number of points wins. The time you take is used as tie-break.
Urban with some trails & paths
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.
Take particular care on the unlit rough slippery paths and parkland if you are running in the dark!
Some roads may not have pavements – so take extra care.
Participants take part at their own risk.
