We encourage running in pairs – this is a must for under 16s (with an adult) but adults can also do so. It is good way to start orienteering, particularly at night. To do this, enter the event using one person’s name (the junior in a junior + adult pair, or one adult of an adult pair) and please add the names of everyone accompanying in the ‘Additional names and ages’ box when you enter. You will just use one SI Card (dibber) between you but you can buy extra maps using the “extras” on SI Entries for £1
