Event Information

LATE ENTRIES ACCEPTED NO LATER THAN 18:00 ON THURSDAY 13TH JAN.

Location
West Woods is about 2.5 miles (4km) southwest of Marlborough. The wood contains a Neolithic long barrow surrounded by a ditch on all sides and is bisected by an ancient earthwork known as the Wansdyke dating back to the 5th or 6th century BC. In 2020 it was announced that West Woods was the most likely origin of most of the sarsen stones used to create Stonehenge.

Travel Directions
West Woods is located between Marlborough and Pewsey and will be signed off the A4 at Clatford west of Marlborough at GR SU159690 (What3Words link: nightlife.frogs.rinse). Assembly will be in the public parking area (What3Words link: cake.cackling.sediment).

THE A345 IS CURRENTLY CLOSED AT OARE HILL NORTH OF PEWSEY AND WILL BE FOR THE REST OF THE MONTH. CONSEQUENTLY, WEST WOODS IS NOT ACCESSIBLE FROM THE A345 AT THIS TIME.

Parking
Parking will be along the main forest road.
PLEASE FOLLOW THE GUIDANCE FROM THE MARSHALS

    Timing System
    EMIT card

  • Competitors with their own EMIT cards can proceed directly to the start
  • Hire cards can be picked up from the table outside the information tent

  • Competitors are encouraged to use back-up cards and to press their EMIT cards down onto the control unit to ensure that they register a pin mark at each control. Competitors whose EMIT cards do not show that they have visited a control will only be reinstated with evidence from the back up card.

    Map
    Scale 1:10,000, 5m contours, updated 2016, minor revisions 2018/2019/2022.
    Overprinted with course on waterproof paper with control descriptions on the front. White, Yellow and Orange course will have written descriptions; all other courses have pictorial descriptions. Loose control descriptions for all courses will be available at the start.
    Some areas of the competition area have undergone recent forestry work. Map corrections have been applied where they may affect the courses, but not all changes due to the work have been corrected on the map. Every effort has been made to correct the maps for hides appearing and disappearing, but there may be the odd exception.

    Terrain
    Mainly mature woodland. Areas of significant undergrowth are marked on the map. Mostly the undergrowth is bramble. Courses have been designed to avoid the worst. Please note that this is a public woodland with wide ranging access including some private vehicles.

    Results
    Results, Splits and Routegadget will be available on the North Wiltshire Orienteers website as soon as practicable after the event

    Conduct
    Please make yourself aware of and abide by the British Orienteering Participant Code of Conduct.

    Clothing and equipment

  • Full leg cover MUST be worn.
  • Whistles MUST be carried and will be checked at the start.
  • In adverse weather we may ask you to wear a cagoule or similar waterproof top
  • Bio-security
    Please come to the event with clean and dry shoes and clothing. Before leaving the event check your clothing and equipment and remove any mud, soil or leaf litter. Once home thoroughly clean your footwear and clothing and leave it to dry for as long as possible. Please take home any litter with you.

    Dogs
    Although this area is a very popular dog walking area, there have been several reported incidents of Alabama Rot which has killed at least one dog. As a result we advise that participants do not bring dogs to this event and to make sure that kit and footwear is washed and disinfected afterwards.

    Hazards
    Please be aware of the risk of ticks and Lyme disease. Dog walkers and horse riders also use the area, so please be respectful and cautious around their animals.

    Safety

  • All competitors MUST report to Download even if retiring from the event.
  • Lone competitors are recommended to leave car keys at Information/Download.
  • It is very important that all competitors have their EMIT cards checked while waiting to start, as this is our record that they have entered the forest.
  • Orienteering is a physically challenging sport, and competitors take part at their own risk.
  • The nearest A&E Hospital is at Swindon Great Western Hospital SN3 6BB.

    Insurance
    The British Orienteering insurance policy provides public liability cover. Please note that if you have competed in three orienteering events and have not joined an orienteering club that is a member of British Orienteering, then you are not covered by this insurance.

    Photography
    Photography is not allowed in the toilets or any "changing area" including where cars are parked. Any concerns with photography or the behaviour of anyone toward any child or young adult must be reported to the event organiser or other official. Safeguarding is everyone's responsibility, play your part, report any concerns and follow good practice.

  • An NWO official may be taking photographs of our traffic management procedures at the request of Forestry England.

  • Medical Conditions
    If you have a high risk medical condition you want the organisers to be aware of please download and complete this form and place it in a sealed envelope with your name on it. This can be left at registration. Envelopes will only be opened if required for a medical emergency. Unopened envelopes should be collected after the event. Any unclaimed envelopes will be destroyed after the event.

    Prior to the event, if you display symptoms (or test positive) for COVID-19, or are required to self-isolate then you must not attend. Refunds will only be given to those unable to attend for this reason.
