Directions / Parking

Parking in the town centre. Best in the Council (Morrisons) Car Park off Queensway, across the road from the Start and Finish. There will be an orienteering kite at the entrance, but no parking officials.

Turn right on entering the car park and park at the end of the car park furthest from the supermarket and take note of any restrictions.

Note that the post code given on the location page is 100m to the NE of the car park entrance. The Grid Reference is more accurate.

The start is across Queensway to the right on the edge of Scatcherd Park 75m from the car park entrance. Please only go to the start when it is your allocated start time. Maintain social distancing at all times.

Toilets: Portable toilets will be provided. Please use the hand sanitiser provided before and after use.

There will be no registration or Entry on the Day.

Controls will be SIAC enabled. But you must dib at the Start and at the Finish.

Competitors with standard or hired SI cards must also dib at all controls.

Hired SI cards can be collected at Download. After your run they must be left in a box beside the splits printer.

Start Procedure

To avoid groups of people around the start area, please do not arrive more than 5 minutes before your allocated start time. Call-up will be 2 minutes before you start.

Please try to adhere to your allocated start time, competitors arriving early may be asked to leave the start area and come back closer to their start time. Competitors arriving late should discuss with the start team when the next start slot will be available and be prepared to leave the start area until they are within 5 minutes of their new start time.

All competitions should maintain social distancing from other competitors and the start team, when in the start area

Please use the hand sanitiser provided before entering the start lane.

There are 3 start lanes. Each lane is divided into 3 1 minute boxes. The 1st start lane is for Yellow, Light Green and Green Courses. The 2nd start lane for Short Green and Blue. The 3rd start lane for Brown and Black. There should only be 1 competitor in each box.

The first box contains the SI clear and check boxes on stakes, in the following order: SIAC Battery Test, Clear, Check. You need to dib these in that order for SIAC cards. For standard and hire SI cards just use Clear then Check. The second box contains the SIAC On/Off test. (Simply waft your SIAC card.)

The second box has loose control descriptions but no display maps.

The third box is the start line. On start time dib at the start box and then pick up your map from the course box, taking care to ensure you only pick up one.

Controls will be SIAC enabled. But you must dib at the Start and at the Finish.
