A 60 minute Urban Score Course with 30 controls

Directions and Parking: The car park is beside the main Northcliffe Park gates on the A650, just west of the junction with the A6138. If full there is ample street parking nearby, particularly off the north side of the A650. Park with consideration to the residents. It is best to avoid parking on the A650 even if legal to do so.

Public Transport:. The 662 Keighley to Bradford bus passes by the car park at 10 minute intervals. Shipley Station is 15 minutes walk away,

Start: The start and finish are co-located inside the park gates, adjacent to the car park.

Important Notes: Take great care if parked in the car park as when you switch on the app it may register to start. We suggest you are 100% ready to run when you switch the app on so as not to utilise any of your precious time! If you do have a false start just end your run and start again.

Be particularly careful on this course not to run back through the start point at anytime before you want to finish as you would stop your timing prematurely - plan your route accordingly.

Some of the footpaths can be muddy in/after wet weather.

Start Anywhere: This course has Start Anywhere enabled. This means that you can start and finish at any control not just the designated start and finish. If doing this the designated start and finish become another checkpoint on the course worth the same points as the checkpoint at which you started. Eg You start at No 14, collect other checkpoints which can include the designated start and finish and to register your time you go back to end your run at No 14.

This mode is great for local people who can start closer to home and for public transport users who can start closer to their arrival point.

Course: This is a Score course with a 60 minute time limit. There are 30 possible checkpoints. Visit as many checkpoints as you can in the time. Each checkpoint is worth 20 points. There is a 10 point penalty for every minute or part therof that you exceed the 60 minute time limit.

Map: The map is an Open Orienteering map at a scale of 1:7500 ie 1cm =75m with 10m contour interval.
