Registration & Start Times

At the venue look for the Airienteers banner and tent.

We will be ready to see you from 1:00 pm

When you arrive you will receive a “Dibber”, an electronic timing chip, given the opportunity to look at the map before you start and an AIRE coach will be on hand to assist to talk you through what to do and answer any questions. The course start will be adjacent. There you receive the map for your course, and you can start at intervals in your own time. You can start at any time up to 2.30 pm.

Entry Details

We suggest a cash donation of £1 per person for the day.

Course Information

For youngest competitors we provide 3 short courses. Do 1 and we tend to find a lot of the kids end up doing all 3!

For older children a single medium course still staying within the parkland area.

For Adult beginners we offer a longer course of around 4km direct line (you will run further) which does go onto quiet roads beyond the park. Ideal for someone with a “Park Runner” type background.

Further details can be found on the Events Page at
