We invite you to enter an event on the extended area used only for the National event in January 2020. Since then, the herd of highland cattle have been exceptionally busy eating brambles etc. and in general the area has become considerably more runnable. The undulating woodland with interspersed areas of open scattered trees will test your navigation. Information about the interesting conservation work in the area can be found at www.nationaltrust.org.uk/cobham-wood-and-mausoleum
Limited Car Parking will be at Lodge Farm, Cobham DA12 3BS 51.389581; 0.414215
w3w verge.proof.arena. If our available spaces are all taken there will be an option to park adjacent to Shorne Woods Country Park and walk to the event centre for those willing to walk 1.8k each way.
Enter as "making my own way to the event" if you are willing to park at Shorne Wood Country Park or on Park Pale and walk to the event centre via footpaths (1.8k each way). A map showing the walking route will be provided to all such entrants.
The area around the farm is barred for public use and we are privileged to be able to park at the farm. A rigorous monitoring of car registration numbers will be needed as many members of the public would also like to park. Please ensure your car reg number on Racesignup remains accurate even if your plans change.
Parking space is limited so cars will be parked close together in the farm yard. Take particular care when exiting your vehicle that there are no other participants outside their vehicle adjacent to you. Remain in your car until the immediate area near to your car is clear.
You must not attend if you or a member of your household has COVID-19 symptoms, or if you have been asked to isolate by NHS Test and Trace.
You must adhere to the British Orienteering Participant Code of Conduct.
The event centre including Download is within the farm yard. The start and finish are within 500m of the event centre but are not close to each other. There will be a first aid kit at the event for largely self-use and a first aid training club member in attendance.
There are no toilets at the event centre. The nearest public toilets are at Shorne Woods Country Park
Contactless punching will be facilitated but it is a Punching Start and Finish.
Control descriptions are printed on the map. Loose control descriptions will be available online as a pdf from the front event page of the DFOK website a week before the event but will not be available at the event.
