Night Urban 2 - Ulverston North

Part of the 2018/19 LOC Night Urban Series

Event date: Wed 14 Nov

The controls, including the finish, will be enabled in contactless mode so that those with SIAC dibbers should not need to physically punch the controls.

If you are using contactless punching there is no need to touch the control boxes, and it has been noted that some runners hit them hard enough to knock them out of the ground and potentially damage the control box. Please don't do this because a failed control would disrupt the event results for all the competitors.

However, note that it will be necessary to punch the start controls which will not be programmed in contactless mode.

Some notes on using SIACs are attached.

What is Orienteering?

Orienteering Control, Source:

Orienteering is a sport that combines map reading and running. Competitors have to find their way between a series of checkpoints, called controls, as quickly as possible. There’s no set route between the controls, so you have to decide which way to go and then find your way there without getting lost.
