Registration: No need to register in advance. Just Enter on the Day (EOD), when you arrive.
Getting Started: When you arrive you will receive a “dibber” (orienteering slang for an electronic timing chip), and if you are new to orienteering, the opportunity to look at the map before you start.

Arrive between 1.30 and 2.30 then you will have time to do more than one course. The event will end around 3.30pm.
