START and FINISH:
The start is located on the fell and is 1.8km uphill from the car park and assembly field. Competitors should allow at least 25 minutes from assembly area to reach the start. The route to the start will be taped along the full length of the route and takes the Fell Lane from GR100 967 to the start at GR108 979. Limited vehicular traffic may be encountered on this lane as the route passes at least one residential property. Farm vehicles may also be present. The track is steep and untarmaced, traffic is unlikely to be travelling with any speed. Nonetheless, care should be taken by competitors on their way to and from the start/finish. The Fell Lane is a popular right of way and other users will also be encountered. Please treat all other route users with courtesy.
Finish is located close to the start and the return to car park and registration area follows the same route as described above to the start.
Waterproofs may be compulsory on the day, dependent on weather conditions. Signs will be displayed at Registration and on exiting the car park field if required. You are strongly recommended to carry a whistle whilst participating in this and every orienteering event. Remember that you must download even if you do not complete your course. And finally, please note that competitors take part at their own risk. Orienteering is an adventure sport – your safety while orienteering is your responsibility.
