Race Information

Head for the small village of Martin, just off the A 354 Blandford / Salisbury road (not the Martin Down Nature Reserve). Turn at the crossroads in the dip of the dual carriageway. In the village of Martin, turn right into Sillins Lane (signed) and head up a bumpy track to a small car parking area (SP6 3LP; GR SU058192 What3Words instructs.brightens.suffer). Go round to the left and to the CP marshal. Please try to park nose to tail to keep distancing. Parking is limited and tight and governs our numbers.

Timing System
EMIT Touch-free kindly on loan from EMIT UK.

On the Course
It's a touch free event - please do not touch the controls, not even with your eTag. Just hover your wrist above the control and check that the eTag flashes. Be aware of other competitors and other users. Keep your distance at all times. Give way at controls, be patient.

Finish and Download
After punching at the Finish please make your way to Download. There's no need to rush, just gather your thoughts, think "social distance" and get your breath back. When you get to Download, sanitize your hands, remove your tag from your wrist and separate the strap from the etag. Place the strap, wound up, into the box provided and place your etag on the table. Take your splits print and drop your tag into the crates. Make your way back to your car. Have a safe journey home.

Results and Routegadget will be available via Racesignup and later on the Club website, hopefully by late Tuesday or Wednesday.

Orienteering is an adventure sport; you are responsible for your own safety at the event and must not do anything that puts yourself or others at unnecessary risk.
