There will be 30 controls each worth 10 points. All controls will be either postboxes or lampposts. 10 point penalty for each one minute (or part) late back to registration.

You are required to touch each control but we trust you to count them for yourself and declare your score when you return to registration.

Terrain Description

The area comprises most of Pudsey and Fulneck and is typical urban terrainwith some hilly areas. All controls are adjacent to surfaced roads but there are places where the quickest route follows unsurfaced tracks or footpaths, for example, through parkland or playing fields.

The map uses Open Orienteering Map (see Peel Park map sample). The map is A3 in size at a scale of 1:7500 with 5m contours.

Dog restrictions

On a tight lead please.
