Registration & Start Times
Registration will be from 17.30.
Runners using their own SI cards are requested to bring them to registration to streamline the registration process and optimise the information accuracy for the results.
Starts will be from 18.00 - 19.00. The start is close to the car park.
Both courses will have a punching start and there will not be a mass start, runners should not start within 30 seconds of another runner.
Less experienced orienteers must start before 18.30
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.
Entry on the day only
Seniors - £4 with an additional £2 for non-BOF members
Junior & Students - £2
Open fell, technical and runnable.
This is an exposed area of the Lake District. All runners must dress appropriately and may be required to carry a waterproof caguole.
