Wiveliscombe

Street Series 4

Wed 26 May

Near: Wiveliscombe
Level of event: Local

Type of event: Race, Score, Urban, Night

Wivey is lovely new area for orienteering within easy reach of Taunton, Wellington and Tiverton. Many comments on how nice the scenery was were passed after the finish, probably helped by the glorious sunshine.

Whilst predominantly an urban course, there were controls in the surrounding countryside, including some up a long steep hill. Some runners took one look at the contours and dismissed those controls while others slogged up and down.

Code of Conduct

Please read the Participant Code of Conduct and, if appropriate, the Parent Code of Conduct. Attendance at the event indicates that you accept them.

Directions / Parking

Parking is along Old Brewery Road and uphill along Hauling Way/Coopers Heights as required. This is an industrial area so is generally quiet after work hours.

The Start is on the N side of the junction of Old Brewery Road with Ford Road. The finish is by some gates accessing the LH side of the brewery building


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. The control circles on the map are coloured red on one set and blue on the other. The colours are meaningful only for the Long score.

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