Directions / Parking
If the Park and Ride car park is closed we will park along a small road that runs parallel and to the east of Silk Mills Road. Turn into the Park and Ride and follow the parking signs.
Courses cater from beginners through to a good club standard and vary in length from 1.5km to 3.5km. We call the courses Hare, Squirrel, Badger and Fox and these offer a clear progression in the difficulty level. Fox course incorporates adult training exercises.
The Badger and Fox courses go into the urban area to the southwest of Longrun Meadow so competitors under 16 years old will have to be accompanied or followed by an adult.
£1 per head for everyone (whether a member or not).
You need to join a recognised orienteering club once you have participated at three or more events. This is a requirement of our insurers. Read about joining QO here.
Registration & Start Times
Courses open at 2pm and close at 3pm. Please try to arrive before 2.30pm for your run.
Mixture of nature reserve, woods and open.
Shortest courses lie within the nature reserve, bounded by the River Tone to the south and the railway line to the north.
Longer courses use some streets.
If you have a smartphone, you can use it to run round the permanent course today or at any other time. You use the phone to read the QR codes on the control stakes as you go.
