Near: Tiverton
Level of event: Local

Type of event: Race, Social, Urban, Night

Co-planners & organisers Simon St Leger Harris and Miffy Treherne of Bristol OK did a fine job developing a brand new area for orienteering, with a significantly updated open-source map, challenging courses and a snug bar-diner to move into once it got a bit chilly outside!

Results

Long course
Short course

After investigation, Simon and Miffy reckon there's scope to use four distinct areas within the Devon market town for future events and their map updates extended beyond the area we used on Wednesday. The Moorhayes Community Centre though was an excellent base and would be a nice place to start from for a summer event also. Our co-planners would welcome a chance to run at Tiverton themselves, not least because they now know the streets there like the back of their hands!

Long course

for the Night Owl trophy

There are still a few runners in contention.

Just to confirm- a planner's bonus score can go down as well as up, meaning in theory Andy Bussell could draw level with Miffy Treherne on 2745 given a sufficiently below par run from Miffy and a winning run from Andy.

Feedback on the current scoring system is welcome.

Short course

Martin Lewis remains in pole position and Graham Hartley second, with Andy Rimes moving up into 3rd. Graham is now the only person who can catch Martin and Graham is currently unable to make the Yeovil event...has Martin done enough to win already?

Directions / Parking

Convenient access from the M5, the Tiverton bypass and the North Devon link road.

Event base is Moorhayes Community Centre, Lea Road, Tiverton EX16 6SU. It's a mile after turning off the A361 Tiverton bypass.

We plan to have map issue on the tables outside the entrance to the public bar, which is round the back of the building from the car park.

Everything's on one site - Start, Finish, assembly, parking and the bar are within 50m of each other.

Course Information

Two courses are offered, Long and Short, using exactly the same controls.

Both are "Score" courses, meaning there isn't a set order to the controls you visit.

Short Score- the order of the controls you want to visit is entirely up to you.

Long Score- "odds and evens" format used.

That is, there are two sets of controls, odd numbered controls and even numbered ones, one set tackled after the other. Once you switch to the second set, you cannot go back to the first set. To help you see the two blocks of controls clearly, the control circles on the map are coloured red for one set and blue for the other.

The optimum routes are typically between 7.5 and 10 km for the long and 6 or 7.5 km for the short.

Each course has a time limit of 50 minutes.

Points will be deducted at a rate of 30 points per minute for each minute or part minute you're late back.

Points values for controls are variable and denoted by the first number of the control, e.g. 62 scores 60 points.

For those who took part in our QOADs series, the Long score uses essentially the same scoring system.
