Explanation of Score courses
You don't have to visit all the controls! There is usually a time limit, instead of a set course. Points are scored for visiting controls, and deducted for finishing over the time limit. 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.
Entry on the Day: Seniors (British Orienteering members) £4, Non-members of BO £6. Juniors & students £3. Group: £10 (1 dibber; map for each participant). Dibber loan: Free
Please email the organiser if you intend coming so we know how many maps to print.
