Directions / Parking
Parking will be at Sevenoaks Prep School, Park Lane, Godden Green TN15 OJU (Grid Ref TQ554545). Sevenoaks Prep is to the east side of the Park. Parking is limited due to proposed building work on site and therefore we ask that you car share where possible. If the car park is full you will be directed to road side parking about 15 minutes walk from Registration.

This Score event has a choice of 40 or 60 minutes time limit options. Novices and families are welcome. There is no set route - just visit as many controls (check points) as you can and return to the finish within your limit of 40 or 60 minutes. There will be a 10 point penalty for every minute, or part thereof, that your run exceeds 40/60 minutes
SE Score Championships
This is a 60 minute score event but W/M16 (and younger) and W/M60 (and older) can opt for the 40 minute score and their scores/penalties will be multiplied by 1.5. The choice of 40 or 60 minutes must be made when registering and cannot be changed later.
Each club receives the aggregated points of its individual score runners from different age classes. The scoring system automatically allows for running up - no declaration of teams is required. The club with the highest total score wins.

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.

Knole is a beautiful open deer park surrounding the historic National Trust Knole House, with areas of largely runnable woodland and a good ride/path network. There are many knolls in the area. Only the most significant ones have been mapped.
There is only one road in the park which leads from the Park entrance to Knole House car park. It is likely that competitors will cross this when visiting controls. It is only a minor road but competitors still need to take care.
