Scoring Scheme -important read it all!

There will be 30 controls worth between 20 and 40 points. 30 point penalty for each one minute (or part) late back to finish.

Controls numbered 20-29 score 20 points

Controls numbered 30-39 score 30 points

Controls numbered 40-49 score 40 points

This is a 45 minute Score event with two sets of controls (ie of different “parity” - odd numbered and even numbered) on the same map.

  • Runners can run either evens or odds first and then the other.
  • The runner’s first block is determined by whether two odds or two evens are punched before two of the other (or stated another way, of the first three non-duplicated controls visited, two are even or two are odd).
  • The flip to the second block is signalled by visiting two controls in the second block in succession. (ie two odds after an initial block of evens or vice versa)
  • Runners don’t need to visit all evens or all odds and could just visit one block of controls.
  • Controls of the wrong parity in a block (ie odds visited in an even block and vice versa) do not count towards the points score but can be visited in the correct block for points.

Terrain Description

Parkland and woodland

Dog restrictions
