Local level event

Explanation of event levels

Local events are usually low key and in the 'localised' area, ideal for newcomers to try the sport and Training events are non competitive and used for training and coaching, aimed at members of the club, but they can attract people from neighbouring clubs, and are often ideal for newcomers to try the sport. Regional events attract participants from around the local Region, National events are high quality competitions that will attract people from far away, Major events are Major Events such as a British Championships. Virtual events are where there are no physical controls being used. Your presence at a control is registered using an App on your mobile phone, normally the free MapRun App.

Terrain type: Woodland

Well done to Duncan and to Heather for organising a great event. Marden's Hill was in great form. Thanks to the Conservators for permission to race there. It was lovely to see a good mix of old hands and newcomers tackle the excellent courses and varied terrain.

Thanks to those who'd signed up to collect controls post event - much appreciated.
