Registration

Please register on line on the link for each event. Some entry on the day may be possible, but we cannot always guarantee there will be enough maps for your chosen course.

Getting Started

When you arrive you will receive a “Dibber”, an electronic timing chip and, if you are new to orienteering, the opportunity to look at the map before you start. A Claro coach will be on hand to assist you at the start. Participants then walk to the start (which will be nearby), receive the map for their course, and start at intervals in their own time. You can start at any time 2-3pm. Courses will close at 4pm.

Costs

Children £3. Adults £4. Claro members (1.50/£2) Second runs £1.

Courses

Orienteering courses are graded by colour. Below are the age appropriate courses that you should enter. However, if you are new to orienteering we recommend you start with the easiest course until you are familiar with using the map and dibber. After you have run your course, you can, if you wish, run a second course for fun and to build your skills (but this will not be counted as competitive).

Course  Class
White M/W 8 or younger
Yellow M/W 10
Orange M/W 12
Light Green M/W 14

M = Men

W = Women

All children and young people can take part in the events; we also welcome parents and adults who would like to try out the sport.
