You decide which controls to visit, and in which sequence. Sometimes controls have different points values. You will need to carry a watch or phone, so you know how long you have been out.

Important Information

Health, safety and other important information related to events.


On 12 October a new system of Covid restrictions was introduced which means that local areas in England have been placed in one of three tiers. Anyone taking part in an orienteering event or activity must ensure that they are aware of the local Covid alert level both in their home area and at the intended venue for their activity, and act in line with the restrictions that apply. When travelling to orienteering events, please take into consideration that this may involve travelling into an area in a different tier, and also that tier definitions may change.

To ensure that we comply with Government and British Orienteering guidelines and make our events Covid secure and safe for participants and volunteers, all events will be pre-entry, pre-payment and for Saxons and BO members only.

During the on-line entry process, you will select your preferred start window from those available for your course. You must then make payment to reserve your start window. Please do not turn up at the event unless you have pre-entered. 

On event day turn up for your allocated start slot

Always respect others & social distance even when orienteering

Please move away from the map box after collecting your map.

At control sites do not touch the control, and move through quickly.

Do not congregate at the Finish.

At Download ensure you are drip and spittle free before downloading.
