Course Information

There will be 20 controls (check points) to find. Visit as many as you can in the time allowed. For experienced orienteers the time limit will be 60 minutes. There will also be a shorter, 45 minute, time limit course. 

60 minute course (only): Start with either 40 series or 50 series in any order but once you switch series you cannot switch back. There are extra bonus points for controls visited in ascending order.

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.
