Pre Event Info

The Final Details for the Event is now available, please check these before the weekend.

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.

There will also be SAFETY controls after the FINISH which must be punched by all runners - this is necessary to enable us to confirm that all runners have returned from the course.


Nearest town: Seathwaite, Dunnerdale

Terrain Description

The terrain is typical open Lakeland Fell. Whilst mainly runnable it has steep slopes, intricate rock and contour detail and few paths or walls. Due to the lack of paths and other line features junior courses will include some taped routes. There are extensive areas of bracken, which hopefully at this time of year should not affect the runnability.


For those staying in the area Lakeland Junior Orienteering Squad (LJOS) have an event in the evening, the information is in the attached PDF. If you intend to go please send your food orders to to help event management. 

Toilets will be located in the assembly field.


This is an exposed Lake District area so please dress appropriately for the weather conditions. If the weather is poor it might be compulsory to wear or carry a suitable waterproof jacket.
