Wellington School


Thu 18 Nov

Near: Wellington
Level of event: Major

Type of event: Race

This event is part of the international TORUS Virtual Temp-O series. Competitors from around the world will be taking part via the wonders of the world wide web.



With the event being on our turf, it would be great to have lots of local participation. All you need is a computer with an internet connection.

Take Part

Once you have registered (choose "Quantock orienteers" as your club) go to the B class and click on the event. Once loaded, you will see a photo with 6 orienteering flags - these are A-F from left to right.

You will then get a map with one control on. Press the letter of the corresponding flag, or Z if you don't think it is any of them. You are against the clock, with a 30s penalty if you get it wrong.

You'll then get several more controls for that photo before it moves to a new location. After 8 locations (called stations) you will have finished.

We've put together a more detailed set of instructions, with examples, here...

Have a look at this little write-up on the last series, including examples of what you'll see...
