A 60 minute score course and a yellow/orange linear course will be offered.

Courses will close at 20.00, please return to download immediately after finishing even if you retire.

Explanation of Score courses

You don't have to visit all the controls! There is usually a time limit, instead of a set course. Points are scored for visiting controls, and deducted for finishing over the time limit. You decide which controls to visit, and in which sequence. Sometimes controls have different points values. You will need to carry a watch or phone, so you know how long you have been out.
