Event Information

Location
The Blue Lion, Tabors Hill, Great Baddow, Chelmsford CM2 7BT. The start & finish will be in the decking/gazebo in the pub garden (weather permitting!).

The pub car park is really small – so there are two alternate locations for parking. The first is at the end of Buckleys, CM2 7DY. This is an area of parking for about 20 cars, adjacent to a local park, just behind where the pub is. After 6pm you can park for as long as you like.
The second option is the parking for the shops at Vineyards, The Causeway, CM2 7JX. Parking here is for 2 hours only, up until 8pm when there are no restrictions.

Timing
Start at times between 6.15pm and 7.15pm. Starts will not be preallocated.
Competitors must report to the finish by 8.30pm

Event information
Long Course 5.3k, 19 Controls, Short Course 3.4k, 14 Controls, (subject to change), these are direct distances between controls. OOMap 1:7,500
Controls are fire hydrant signs (note - one on the long course is homemade). You will be asked to record the lower number on the hydrant sign. (Clue :- in the woodland, keep left & follow the bark path).

Why not stay behind at the end for a drink in the Blue Lion, there is also food available.

Safety
Participation is at your own risk. Under 16s must be accompanied by an adult. Bring clothing and footwear appropriate for the weather conditions. As with any urban orienteering this requires participants to cross roads and you are asked to take due care and attention at all times. High visibility clothing is strongly recommended. There may be dog walkers, cyclists or residents on pavements and footpaths – be aware and give them priority.
