Our series of night events, with a score course for all abilities.
See our page dedicated to night events, including the latest league table.
All those participating must wear a head torch plus carry a spare and a whistle for emergencies.
Series Co-ordinator: Roger and Judy Craddock 01823 323850
Format: one hour score course for all abilities.
Scoring: different points awarded for each control dependent on its difficulty e.g. 15 for easy control 50 for difficult or far away control. Maximum points available typically = 500.
Penalties: will be deducted for late finishes at 10 points per minute and pro rated to fractions of minutes.
Restriction: controls are divided equally into two blocks, red and blue. You can switch between one set of controls to the other only once. e.g. If you started on red, once you have dibbed a blue control you must continue on blue. This format allows stronger runners to cover more ground i.e. two loops of the area.
Newcomers: it is possible to select a sequence of controls that would be no more difficult than a Yellow or an Orange course. To make it even easier, if you attend JOG training during the day you can see where the night controls are located.

Registration: 17.00 – 17.45
