Pre Event Info
Directions / Parking
Willett Hill is most easily found by taking the B3224 from where it leaves the main Taunton to Minehead road. That is, just after Bishops Lydeard (close to Cedar Falls). After five miles and a short steep rise, the entrance to the forest is on the left.
Drive through the gate and gently uphill to the parking area and registration. If this area fills up, the track is also wide enough for parking.
Cater from beginners through to a good club standard. 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.
£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.
