North West Night League - Dale Park
Part of NWNL Series
Sat 18 Jan 2020
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.

In bad weather waterproof jackets must also be carried or worn, in which case this will be notified at registration. Waterproof overtrousers, a hat and gloves may also be made compulsory if the weather is more extreme. Competitors are encouraged to carry a mobile telephone so that they can summon assistance in the event of an incident.
