Additional information/planners notes: Due to the nature of the ground, all courses must traverse several wide gates, as they are the only way of crossing between fields. On the day we hope to have all the gates open to allow safe, socially distanced crossing between participants at all times. However, if we could ask all runners to always keep to their left when crossing/going through gates, we should run into no issues.
Keltonfell top is actually a darn good spot, and I hope our courses have done this place justice. Abandoned mineshafts and pits provide great interest, while open farmed fellside gives way to some speedy running. The long course is what we hope can be described as "a good run out", taking advantage of some longer leg stretching sections providing ample route choice and some fine technically featured orienteering. For those feeling something on the shorter side, our short course has all the same technical nav, with a bit less running but no less of a challenge. For the newcomers, our Novice course will take you on an easy-to-follow journey around this obscure yet delightful part of our county.
WCOC Night Series 2020-21
You will need a good lamp or light, preferably a headtorch to leave your hands free for the map and compass! The events really are great fun, and because you have to be sure of your location at all times, your orienteering skills will improve no end.
It is recommended that you carry a whistle and spare batteries/torch. It is also advised that you wear some form of reflective clothing in the unlikely event of a search for a competitor who is hurt, unable to walk or is concussed). This shouldn’t be too difficult as most modern clothing, shoes, back packs or bum bags have some reflective sections or flashes. However, some reflective armbands will also be available at registration.
Starts are from 5.30 – 7.00 pm and courses will close promptly at 8.30 pm (unless otherwise indicated at registration). Earlier starts may be allowed if the planner is ready to go. ALL COMPETITORS SHOULD ENSURE THAT THEY REGISTER BEFORE RUNNING AND HAVE RETURNED TO REGISTRATION BY THE COURSE CLOSE TIME, EVEN IF THEY HAVE NOT COMPLETED THE COURSE.If you arrive late please consider running a shorter course to ensure you have returned by course close time.
