What is a Spanish Style Score event?

There are 15 controls set out in the Pinewoods of varying technical difficulty. We all get ready to start together. We pair everyone up – one experienced orienteer with one junior/ less experienced orienteer. Everyone gets the map and each pair has a few minutes to divide up the controls between them. Everyone starts at the same time and runs on their own visiting the controls they have agreed with their partner. The winners are the first pair to both return to the finish having visited all 15 controls between them. 

Its a fun way for everyone of every ability to compete together.
